Immerse yourself in the beauty of the British Isles in this very special ‘behind the scenes’ Wild Isles big screen experience. Featuring highlights from the acclaimed BBC series alongside never-before-seen footage and insight from visionary documentary producer Alastair Fothergill.

Join Alastair on a captivating journey through the most curious and breathtaking landscapes of the British Isles – from golden eagles in the Highlands to the weird and wonderful world of our woodland undergrowth. Alastair will talk about the making of this series and his past, groundbreaking work, which includes other iconic series such as Planet Earth, Our Planet, Frozen Planet and The Blue Planet.

The event also features a Q&A. Audiences will be able to ask questions to Alastair in advance via the Wild Isles live website – – or pose questions on the night.

At a critical time for our biodiversity, as highlighted in the BBC Series, this is a unique opportunity to discuss the importance of conservation, individual action and the importance of preserving the beauty of the British Isles.

This event was made possible with the support of the World Wildlife Foundation and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

With additional thanks to the National Trust.
