There are very few writers who have garnered as much affection from our audiences as the wonderful Robert Macfarlane: The Old Ways, Holloway, The Wild Places and Mountains of the Mind are all gripping examinations of the world we live in. His latest book, Landmarks, is a joyous meditation on words, landscape and the relationship between the two. Words are grained into our landscapes, and landscapes are grained into our words; Landmarks is about the power of language to shape our sense of place.He shows that language, well used, is a keen way of knowing landscape, and a vital means of coming to love it.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Robert back for his now traditional Midsummer event; his talks are always vivid, beautiful and utterly compelling.  Do not miss this opportunity to hear his stunning writing brought to life.

Please note that, due to popular demand, the venue for this event has changed since it was first announced
