CLIMATE SYMPOSIUM: “A WORLD WITHOUT…..”

This Friday, 27th July – 1pm – I’m very excited to be joining Fiona Talkington (BBC Radio 3 presenter and festival curator), and 3 other panelists to talk about “ice, climate change, silence, darkness and beyond”. It’s going to be a really interesting cross-over between what I’ve been doing as part of the Reading Climate Change Partnership, and my other world as a musician.

You can book free tickets through: https://merl.reading.ac.uk/event/climate-symposium-world-without/

Link to: How does it make you feel…?

Microsite I've set up to share songs, and meanings, for the ‘How does it make you feel…?’ event, which will be online at 7pm on Saturday 14 November. And part of the Reading Climate Festival 2020. It promises to be an interesting and heartfelt conversation so we really hope you can join us on the night.

It was great to be able to share some of the things we are planning to do in our new Reading Climate Emergency Strategy last night. Many thanks to Michael Bright, and all at Reading Town Meal, for organising the event and for keeping things going despite the Covid restrictions.
