Join us for an evening with James Aldred as he talks about his memoir The Man Who Climbs Trees, revealing the extraordinary stories of his adventures across the globe.
You may not know his name, but you will have seen his work. James Aldred is a professional British tree climber, cameraman and adventurer, who has made a career out of travelling the world, filming wildlife for the BBC and climbing trees with people like David Attenborough, Chris Packham, Helen Macdonald and Kate Humble. James’s climbs take him to breathtaking locations as he scales the most incredible and majestic trees on the planet. On the way he meets native tribes, gets attacked by African bees, climbs alongside gorillas, chased by elephants, and spends his nights in a hammock pitched high in the branches with only the stars above him.
The Man Who Climbs Trees is a love letter to trees and the natural world. It blends incredible stories of scrapes and bruises in the branches with a new way of looking at life high above the daily grind, up into the canopy of the forest.
We’re delighted to welcome James to Oswestry for what should be a fascinating evening of treetop adventures celebrating the paperback publication of his book.
Tickets: £6 (£5 redeemable against a signed copy of The Man Who Climbs Trees). Includes a glass of wine / soft drink on arrival. Tickets available from the bookshop, or purchase online (with booking fee).
