Birds and People

Mark Cocker, author, broadcaster, naturalist and environmental activist will bring to life his new illustrated book Birds and People.

Mark’s book celebrates the relationship between birds and people and draws upon 40 years of observing and thinking about birds. Part natural history and part cultural study, it maps the entire spectrum of our engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics and the environment.

Part of a series of lectures sponsored by the Friends of Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives.

Other lectures in the series

Please note, the lecture takes place at Tyndall Lecture Theatre, University of Bristol NOT Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. Parking can be difficult so please allow an extra 15 minutes to allow plenty of time. Access on foot is via the Royal Fort entrance, along the path and to the left. Also, there is no need for you to print out your ticket.
