Join Chris Packham, one of the nation's favourite naturalists and learn what sparked his fascination with wildlife.

Chris will be discussing his memoir, Fingers in the Sparkle Jar (published by Ebury Press), in which he tells of his unconventional childhood. You'll find out about ladybirds in matchstick boxes, tadpoles on spoons and a pet mouse called Batty - just some of the creatures that inspired Chris' lifetime of work.

Members will then have the opportunity to ask Chris questions, and the exclusive evening will close with a book signing.
