Dorset Wildlife Trust hear talk from globetrotting producer and director
This April, Dorset Wildlife Trust will be whisking locals away to tropical climates and exotic waters with a talk by James Brickell.
The producer and director of the BBC’s The Great Barrier Reef will be hosting a talk on the world’s biggest marine structure.
The talk will be taking place at The Digby Memorial Hall in Sherborne. Last year Sherborne was also the location for Dorset Wildlife Trust’s sell-out talk by Simon King. But this year it’s the turn of James Brickell, to talk about this fabulous series.
James has a passion for wild animals and has in the past directed some of the most highly regarded TV presenters in wildlife filming.
Despite spending a great deal of time in close proximity to a wide range of dangerous animals including polar bears, lions, cheetahs and crocodiles, James has so far escaped largely unscathed with only a small piranha bite.
James Brickell’s TV filming credits include the Really Wild Show, Wildlife on One, Big Cat Diary and the ground-breaking series with Sir David Attenborough: Life in Cold Blood.
Fiona Sansom, Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Supporter Development Manager said: “Dorset is a coastal county, and many people here are passionate about marine life and marine conservation issues.
“To have someone like James Brickell come and present a talk on his series is a fantastic opportunity for nature lovers to learn about habitats and wildlife from the other side of the globe.
“It is sure to be a great evening and with tickets limited to 200, I would strongly recommend early booking.”
‘The Great Barrier Reef, an evening with James Brickell’ will be hosted by Dorset Wildlife Trust at The Digby Memorial Hall, Digby Road, Sherborne on Wednesday, April 18 at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 and available from Sherborne Tourist Information Centre.
Please call 01935 815341 for more information or to book tickets. Funds from this event will be used to protect wildlife in Dorset.
