An Evening with Chris Packham
In a special bespoke evening at the Royal Hall, Packham will talk about his photography and work with wildlife and conservation. He'll also discuss his autobiography, Fingers in the Sparkle Jar. The memoir which was voted the UK's 'Favourite Nature Book' inspired his TV documentary, Asperger's and Me.
Extraordinarily creative and prolific, Chris Packham has led a remarkable life.
He had a passion for the natural world from an early age, with a bedroom full of jars of wildlife, before becoming involved in the punk scene and adopting its defiant spirit. He began experimenting with photography and trained as a wildlife film cameraman before moving in front of the camera to present The Really Wild Show in 1986.
The passionate defender of wildlife has worked on TV's Springwatch and its seasonal spin-offs since 2009, and presented numerous natural history programmes. Earlier this year he took part in Blue Planet Live, examining the impact of ocean pollution.
The evening will also include a Q&A hosted by his co-presenter on Springwatch Unsprung, Lindsey Chapman, followed by a book signing.
Yorkshire-born Lindsey is a Patron of The Wild Watch in Nidderdale AONB. Lindsey grew up in Beverley, East Yorkshire where she developed her love of nature. She now presents a number of wildlife and arts programmes including Big Blue UK, Costing the Earth and Springtime on the Farm, alongside working with Chris Packham.
