“At last year’s Nature Connections Festival I was lucky enough to meet Chris Packham. He did a really interesting talk about nature and how it’s all around you, and that you don’t have to go into the countryside to see it.

I found Chris both educational and fascinating, and he helped me understand just how amazing nature is! After his talk I went up to him to ask a question that I just needed an answer to – “How do I get rid of my fear of spiders?” – he spent ages talking to me, and gave me some excellent advice that I really appreciated!

Chris Packham is definitely a nature expert.  I wouldn’t call myself a nature expert in any shape or form but what I do know about nature is this – you can’t get anything more beautiful. I often marvel at the beautiful things all around us, that nature has produced.  I think everyone should understand how amazing nature can be and this Nature Connections Festival reminded me of that.

Also, at the festival last year, there were plenty of other fab activities and guests. For example, Josh Sutton (AKA The Guyrope Gourmet) made an amazing paella for all at the festival to try. I would definitely recommend going to this year’s awesome Nature Connections Festival! It’s for all ages and me and my family found it a very enjoyable day!”
