Television wildlife expert to visit Andover

Johnny Kingdom - Andover The Lights
Wildlife expert: Johnny Kingdom

Johnny Kingdom is a one-off wildlife enthusiast and will be sharing his tales and stunning images at The Lights on 31 January.

The former gravedigger has enchanted huge audiences on the BBC and ITV with his unique approach to filming the animals and birds on Exmoor and across the wider country.

His first series in 2006 Johnny Kingdom: A Year on Exmoor was shown on BBC Two followed by a further BBC series, Johnny’s New Kingdom in 2008.

Johnny’s passion for deer, badger, fox and birdlife is clear to the viewer, often with a wobbly camera.

He has the rare field craft skills that help him find and then film birds and animals without them ever knowing he is there, and he has the gift of making the viewer feel that they are there with him, watching wildlife close up.

Over the years he’s found himself in all sorts of hilarious and sometimes dangerous situations and in conversation with the producer of his television programmes, David Parker, he will show clips from his programmes and talk about how he manages to film some memorable encounters with the cream of Britain’s wildlife.

Wildlife or photography enthusiasts should find ‘An Evening with Johnny Kingdom’ on Wednesday 31st January 2018 at The Lights is a must.

Tickets are available from The Lights box office.
