TV presenter, photographer, author and wildlife expert Chris Packham is promising a wild night out.

Chris will be at the Platform in Morecambe for two nights this week with his entertaining and informative look at some of the most interesting species from around the world.

He will be explaining the fascinating ecologies and behaviours of animals from leopards to barn owls and cheetahs to pond skaters.

He tells of close shaves, 
the often bizarre lengths he’ll go to to get a picture and challenges people to think again about the conventions of conservation.

His conversational style, irreverent humour and sometimes controversial opinions make for a hugely rewarding night of entertainment.

The show will take place this Thursday and Friday, July 3/4 at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £15.50 adult, £10.50 children and are available online at, via the box office on 01524 582803 or in person from Visitor Information Centres in Morecambe and Lancaster.
