Evening with Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust' historian Lucy Worsley to raise money for wildlife efforts
After more than a year of postponements and delays Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is delighted to finally be welcoming Nottingham’s Lucy Worsley for an ‘Evening with...’
After a year that saw many fundraising activities put on hold and all events cancelled, the wildlife charity has restarted it popular series of celebrity lectures.
Chris Packham has already given a talk in a sold-out evening at Nottingham’s Albert Hall and next month will see the return of historian Lucy Worsley.
Lucy, who grew up in West Bridgford where she spent many Saturdays’ studying in the local library before going on to study history, will deliver an evening focused on Jane Austen.
It is at the Albert Hall on Friday, October 15, when Lucy will bring Jane Austen to life, exploring the intelligent, powerful, contradictory, loving and loved woman.
The celebrity events generate vital funds for the charity’s efforts to protect wildlife habitats and to creating nature recovery networks.
The trust’s head of communications Erin McDaid said: “These events have proved extremely popular and many supporters were left hugely disappointed when we had to postpone the earlier dates but everyone understood why.
“We are really delighted to be able to welcome Lucy back to Nottingham and can’t wait to hear her take on Jane Austen. It’s set to be a real treat.”
Tickets are available from the Trust’s website nottinghamshirewildlife.org/events along with the next in the series of Celebrity Lectures after Lucy Worsley with Iolo Williams and Martin Hughes-Games on Thursday, November 18.
