An Evening with Gillian Burke

Join us for a talk presented by the wonderfully talented Gillian Burke. Gillian joined the much-loved BBC seasonal wildlife series, affectionately known as ‘The Watches’ in 2018 alongside hosts Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan & Lolo Williams. Her filming experience has had her herding llamas in the high Andes to free-diving with swarms of sea snakes in the South China Sea; from crawling through rattlesnake dens in the Arizona desert to climbing a living, writhing mountain of cockroaches & centipedes in a bat cave in Borneo.
