Kate Humble and a tale of two cities
Wildlife and nature expert Kate Humble continues her fascinating series of An Audiences with…. appearances this week with two shows, which confusingly both take place in town’s called Newport but hundreds of miles apart.
This evening (Monday 8th October) finds writer and broadcaster Kate at the Medina Theatre in Newport, Isle of Wight. While on Wednesday (10th October) she will be at The Riverside Centre in Newport, Wales.
So be careful with those sat-navs. Wherever you catch up with her you will be in for a treat as Kate - best known for her work on BBC shows like Springwatch and Autumn Watch - will talk about her a compelling new book Thinking on My Feet and a discussing her life working with wildlife.
She’ll talk about the many far-flung places that her work has taken her to and the inspiring people she has met on her travels.
There's also a unique chance to go 'behind the camera' as Kate describes how the programmes are made along with some lovely anecdotes about the filming.
Away from the cameras Kate more than lives up to her on-screen image of being a hands-on expert on the natural world. In 2007 she and her husband Ludo moved to a smallholding in Wales and in 2011 set up 'Humble by Nature' a rural skills school on a working farm in the WyeValley. They live with a variety of feathered and furry livestock and three dogs
