WAG exhibition appreciation night
In the 1960’s, Born Free captured the world’s imagination with the story of Elsa, an orphaned lioness who was taken in by George and Joy Adamson and returned to a life in the wild. The book and film sparked a new love of nature but the true story of what happened afterwards was far more tragic as both George and Joy were murdered. This drama documentary re-lives those events. Nature in Art has held a number of events in support of Elsa Trust and Born Free. Representatives from Elsa Trust will be present on the night and a few of Joy Adamson’s original paintings will be on show.
Tickets: £8, includes buffet supper.
Tickets must be booked in advance
