Building on their 'The Expert And The Layman' talk, Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt and William Mankelow (photographer) discuss in an improvised conversational style how humour is a key building block in their collaborative work out in nature.

They will reminisce about their nature focused collaboration and work in wildlife gardening, writing, photography, workshops, talks, radio, filming, stage show and international research with isolated cultures.

They will explore The Peoples Countryside project that gives nature a voice through audio podcasts, radio, photography, film and on the stage with Live and Unscripted.

Special guests sometimes included and your chance to see an improvised talk that can go anywhere.

Everyone has their biting point, what’s yours?

An extension of his work and interests include developing some academic research with Oxford University into the benefits of nature on the human body.
