Ancient woods discussion
We’re hosting one of many fascinating talks on the festival programme too. If trees could talk, they would say history was built on their branches. Full of character and sometimes centuries old, they are a legacy of how we’ve used the land and have been an economic necessity for generations. But why and how should we nurture the next generation of ancient trees?
Join us in the Helix Theatre at 2.15pm on Thursday 7 June, where our very own Saul Herbert will join Jeremy Dagley, Epping Forest’s head of conservation, and landscape historian Tom Williamson for an hour of lively discussion on ancient woods. Tickets are £9 including booking fee - buy online or call the box office on 01242 850270 to make sure you don’t miss out.
A fresh look at the world around us
The theme for this year’s festival is Connected:Divided. With six jam-packed days of debate, discovery, experiments, enjoyment and hands on fun, visitors can explore what connects and divides us as a species – from personal relationships, health and language to the law, global politics and the universe.
Past speakers include Brian Cox, Robert Winston, Alice Roberts and Richard Dawkins and over 280 leading experts in the fields of psychology, biology, technology, engineering, anthropology, health, current affairs and the environment will be ready to answer your most burning questions.
