Simon King will visit the city theatre on June 21.

He will also be answering questions on his career as a wildlife film-maker working on projects around the world for programmes including Planet Earth.

A spokesperson said: “Simon’s love of wildlife began in his childhood home in Africa – it certainly influenced his first career choice which was to become an elephant when he grew up!

“Simon has now given up on the idea of becoming an elephant, but has never given up on the idea of ensuring the survival of this and every other species that inhabits this planet.”

“The evening at the Garrick includes an extensive Q and A session giving people the opportunity to chat with Simon about everything from the wildlife on your doorsteps to his adventures all over the world.”

Tickets start at £18 and can be booked by calling 01543 412121 or visiting
