Wild Child and A Claxton Diary: Further Field Notes From A Small Planet, 4:00pm Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Two of our finest nature writers (and Guardian columnists) discuss their latest books and tackle the pressing issues of climate crisis, nature depletion and our disconnection from the natural world in busy urban lives.

Patrick’s Wild Child particularly explores the relationship between children and nature and the joy to be found in the natural world. Buxton lad and festival favourite Mark Cocker celebrates the art of patience, to observe a butterfly, a bird, flower, bee and to take pleasure in all the inhabitants of ‘one’s parish’ no matter how seemingly insignificant.
