THOSE interested in all things wildlife and nature are in for a treat when a famous TV presenter delivers an insightful talk in Pershore.

Back by popular demand Chris Packham will go wild with an entertaining and informative look at some of nature’s most interesting species when he is special guest at Pershore Number 8 Community Arts Centre.

Packham, who is also a respected photographer, will take to the stage at the popular High Street venue on Tuesday, July 1 with the show starting at 7.30pm.

Illustrated with his superb photographs, he explains the fascinating ecologies and behaviours of a range of creatures from leopards to barn owls, polar bears to pond skaters.

Chris’ conversational style, irreverent humour and sometimes controversial opinions make for a hugely rewarding evening’s entertainment.

He tells of close shaves, the bizarre lengths he’ll go to get a picture and challenges the audience to think again about the conventions of conservation.

The show is suitable for ages eight to 80, with plenty of time for questions.

Tickets cost £16.50 and are available by visiting or by calling the Number 8 Box Office on 01386 555488.
