Join TV presenter and wildlife expert Chris Packham in discussion with Hugh Warwick, natural history writer and passionate ecologist, to hear Chris discussing his newly published memoir ‘Fingers in the Sparkle Jar’.

In his beautifully wrought, coming-of-age memoir, Chris Packham brings to life his childhood in the early 70's, from his bedroom bursting with foxes' skulls, bird's eggs and sweaty jam jars, to his feral adventures. Pervading the story is the search for freedom, meaning and acceptance in a world that didn't understand him. When he stole a young kestrel from its nest, he embarked on a friendship that would teach him what it meant to love, and that would change him forever.

Tickets £5 (available from the Museum of Natural History Shop, or Waterstones, Oxford)
