Patrick Barkham on The Wild Life of Roger Deakin

Wed, 8 Nov 2023
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Roger Deakin wrote the nature writing classics Waterlog, Wildwood and Notes From Walnut Tree Farm. But before he painstakingly restored his ancient farmhouse on the edge of Mellis common in Suffolk, he was also a maverick ad-man and seller of stripped-pine furniture. Later he became an inspirational teacher, filmmaker, music promoter and eco-warrior. Today, he lives on as the patron saint of wild swimming. Patrick brings alive this great romantic in an illustrated talk, and tells stories of Roger and his generation – arguably the most distinctive that ever lived.

Patrick Barkham is an award-winning author and natural history writer for the Guardian. His books include The Butterfly Isles, Badgerlands, Islander and Wild Child. He is President of Norfolk Wildlife Trust and lives in Norfolk with his family.
