A Wildlife Road Trip!
17th October 2021. Tickets are £25, BUY TICKETS HERE.
At Cause UK, we’re thrilled to continue our work showcasing wildlife and nature talks.
This October (2021), we’re bringing two of the UK’s best-loved wildlife TV presenters for a wildly entertaining evening at the Royal Hall in Harrogate.
Martin Hughes-Games and Iolo Williams promise an exhilarating ‘Wildlife Road Trip’.
The pair, best known for working on the flagship Springwatch TV series, will take audiences on a funny and fascinating journey. They’ll begin with tales from their childhood – where their love of nature began – and tell of the life events that led them to where they are today.
It promises a behind-the-scenes insight into wildlife TV presenting, from Martin’s experience as a producer and director in TV, to Iolo’s experience working with the RSPB, catching egg thieves and working with the army.
Clair, Director of Cause UK, said: “In 2019, we brought Chris Packham and Steve Backshall to Harrogate and we’re proud to continue showcasing wildlife events. Martin and Iolo are infectiously enthusiastic and we hope they’ll inspire audiences of all ages to engage with nature. The climate emergency is the most pressing issue in our lifetime, and fostering a love of nature is vital to ensure we protect it.”
The Wildlife Road Trip includes audience participation. Along the journey, the pair will be assisted by a well-known virtual wildlife expert popping up to make sure the facts are correct, adding a funny and informative addition to the show.
Martin Hughes-Games trained as a zoologist before joining the BBC science department. He’s worked in TV for over 30 years and is an active conservationist. Iolo Williams is most widely known for his work on the Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch presenting team, as well as series such as Wild Wales for the BBC.
Martin said: “ Over a nearly 40-year long career in TV my main passion has been to try to get more people interested in conservation to help protect our special places.”
