Five weeks today, at the Palace Hotel Buxton, there will be an evening to celebrate the Hen Harrier. Henry is celebrating already!
Tickets will go on sale in a week’s time, at £10 per head.
The event will feature: Chris Packham, Mark Cocker (Buxton-born author), local performers, Jeremy Deller (Turner Prize winning artist see here and here (to be confirmed)), a grouse butt, the RSPB Skydancer film, a pile of shotgun cartridges, Charlie Moores of Birders Against Wildlife Crime, Henry the Hen Harrier and I’ll be there too.
Doors will open 1830, performance starts 1930, event closes 2145 (all times approx). There will be a cash bar open until midnight.
There will be a book stall selling copies of books by the speakers who will be delighted to sign books on the evening.
This event is on the evening before the Peak District Hen Harrier Day event takes place in the Goyt Valley on Sunday 9 August.
It will be a blast!
