About this Event

Patrick Barkham takes us on a journey around some of Britain’s most intriguing small islands, meeting their wild residents – from Orkney voles to Bonxies. In this illustrated talk, he explores how small islands can be ecological laboratories, warning signals and sanctuaries – for wildlife and us. What do small islands tell us about our relationship with the natural world? Do small islands have big lessons for us on the mainland?

His latest book Islander, won the 2018 National Geographic Traveller Magazine book of the year award. Patrick lives with his family near the Norfolk Broads.
