An illustrated talk by Julian Hight
Come on a tour of Britain’s ancient forest told through its surviving ancient trees. From the wildwood, through working woodlands and royal forests, enclosed deer parks and landscaped manorial estates to modern plantation forestry and rewilding, this talk recounts the little told tale of an evolving landscape shaped by its wildlife, people and their relationship with trees – many of which survive as living links to Britain’s rich and ancient history. As well as being an ancient tree specialist and nature lover, Julian Hight is a designer, photographer and musician, so his talk will also feature original music written and recorded by him reflecting seasons in the forest, with forest sounds recorded through the year weaved in to produce a unique forest soundtrack.Copies of Julian’s latest book ‘Britain’s Ancient Forest, legacy and lore’, will be available on the night.Free access to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition 7.00pm – 7.30pm. Buffet at 7.30pm. Talk starts c8.10pm. PLEASE BOOK YOUR TICKET IN ADVANCE.
