Special Offers and Events

20th October - My Family and Other Animals - Behind the scenes with Lee Durrell

7.30pm

Meet Lee Durrell, eminent zoologist, author and conservationist, to hear her talk of adventures in the wild, Jersey Zoo and, of course, her late husband Gerald Durrell.

Gerald Durrell was a wildlife conservationist who became a household name through the hilarious tales told in My Family and Other Animals. The Durrells moved to Corfu to escape the grey skies of England, and their unconventional life on the Greek island in the 1930s are coloured by the menagerie of local creatures who took over their family home.

The real characters in Gerry£s early life read as if they were conjured up by Roald Dahl£s wildest imaginings, from his pompous older brother Larry to their taxi driver and mentor Spiros Americanos, Quasimodo the walking pigeon and Achilles the tortoise.

It was some beginning for the naturalist Gerry was to become, and the family£s menagerie foreshadowed the collection of animals he amassed as an adult, eventually founding the Jersey Zoological Park. His zoo became the platform of numerous conservation projects around the world, and many of his subsequent missions are chronicled in his numerous books.

Lee will be speaking at the Halesworth Arts Festival about Gerry£s extraordinary life, starting with his famous childhood and moving on to the incredible life he went on to have, dedicated to saving wildlife.

Join us for a unique opportunity to hear about the life of one of the world£s most celebrated conservationists from his wife and successor, Lee Durrell.

All profits from ticket sales will go towards the wildlife conservation charity World Land Trust.

Tickets: £14.50.
