This coming Friday I’ll be at the Electric Palace in Bridport reading and talking with Nick Fisher, Tim Dee and Dave Goulson. The theme for the evening is Rivers, Fields and Bees, encompassing the subjects of my book Silt Road, Tim’s fabulous Four Fields and Dave’s A Sting in the Tail which was short-listed for the 2103 Samuel Johnson Award. Nick, Tim and myself will be chatting and reading. Dave is giving an illustrated talk.
The Kenneth Allsop memorial evening, part of the Bridport Festival, is an annual celebration of the life of Kenneth Allsop, broadcaster and champion of conservation, who lived near Bridport until his death in 1973. The evening will be hosted by Nick Fisher and introduced by David Wilkinson, author of the recent Keeping the Barbarians at Bay, which explores Allsop’s role at the birth of the environmental movement in Britain.
There will be live music by Florence Astley. The evening starts at 6.30 pm, tickets cost £12, and proceeds will be donated to Common Ground.
