The Steadfast Guide to Live Entertainment
To celebrate our Really Wild Exhibition in the Gallery we are delighted to welcome Chris Packham with two exciting shows in one day. His energy and enthusiasm for natural history publicly premiered with the award-winning Really Wild Show on BBC1. Many more programmes followed, most recently Watchout, Birdwatch, and the highly acclaimed X-Creatures. He even contributed to ITV's The Good Sex Guide- thankfully talking about real birds and real bees! His love of all things wild has shaped his career, which includes successful and award winning photography and a string of wildlife books. His approach is modern, involving, down to earth but above all enthusiastic. The first "punk" presenter won't shy away from controversy or humour in his quest to win a new audience of natural historians! First of all...Chris Packham presents
Chris Packham: Jaws, Claws...
(for children aged 7-11yrs and all nature lovers)
If you want to know what happens if an adder bites your toe, why you shouldn't get albatross pooh on your jacket or why no one has ever seen woodlice mating this is the show for you! Prepare to be amazed by five million flamingos, great white sharks, tales of spiders' bizarre lifestyles plus bites, scratches and stings before sampling the simpler wonders of nature on your own doorstep. Illustrated with his own stunning photographs (a few tips and a few stories thrown in) this is not a lecture for academic zoologists- it is a highly enjoyable, humorous one hour show for young and old alike, featuring the wildlife and wild places all over the world.
