I love talking to groups of all sizes and backgrounds, including natural history groups, WI groups, young people, university societies and at events and festivals. I do these on my own or with my husband, Dr Rob Lambert, and will occasionally have a very well-behaved small person in tow. See our upcoming talks below or check out what talks we give. Contact us to book or discuss something bespoke. I also enjoy working with schools. Because of work and parental commitments, we are a bit restricted to the Midlands at present, but get in touch just in case we can make it work.

Come and say ‘hello’!
