TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham brings his new solo show to the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe this autumn.

Everyone is tempted by glamour, the big, the brash and the beautiful.

But Chris Packham likes to champion the underdog and push back at familiarity breeding contempt so for him humble everyday creatures are just as alluring.

He likes to ‘make something out of other people’s nothing’ when it comes to photography and loves the challenge of finding beauty in ugly places.

And when he does travel to some of the world’s wildlife hotspots he wants to see them in a new way, to put some art into his photos.

But at the core of all his work is conservation so expect tales from the frontline and the full-frontal truth about how people get it wrong and get it right.

Funny, inspiring, irreverent and packed with information, this new show is not a lecture, it’s a romp through the wild mind of Chris Packham.

Chris Packham came to prominence as a presenter on the children’s wildlife series, The Really Wild Show alongside the late Terry Nutkins and Michaela Strachan.

He has become widely known in recent years for being one of the presenters on the BBC’s annual Springwatch and Autumnwatch programmes.

He is at the Baths Hall on November 1.

Tickets for the show are available now from the box office on 0844 8542776 or www.bathshall.co.uk
