AS Winterwatch 2013 hits the nation’s TV screens on BBC Two this week, one of the wildlife show’s presenters is set to appear live in St Albans.
Television favourite Michaela Strachan returns this evening (Monday) with fellow Autumnwatch co-hosts Chris Packham and Martin Hughes-Games for another look at Britain’s wildlife.
The trio will be following the fortunes of wildlife around the UK from their base in the Highlands of Scotland from 8.30pm tonight on BBC2.
Following the four-part series run on consecutive nights, Michaela Strachan will be touring the country with her own production.
She will bring her Really Wild Adventures show to the Alban Arena, in St Albans, on Tuesday, February 19.
Adapted from her own book of children’s poetry, the popular TV presenter will take families on a delightful journey through an alphabet jungle of animal rhymes.
From antelopes to zebras, from orphaned orangutans to polar bear dentistry, this is a whistle-stop interactive show full of poetry, dancing, music and lots of fascinating wildlife facts.
Directed by award-winning Malachi Bogdanov, the show is suitable for children aged three to eight.
Tickets for Michaela Strachan’s Really Wild Adventures cost £12 and it takes to the Alban Arena stage at 2pm.
* Winterwatch 2013 can be seen on BBC2 at 8.30pm tonight (Monday) and at 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Winterwatch Unsprung follows Thursday’s hour-long programme at 9pm.
