Well-known environmental journalist and author Patrick Barkham will be appearing in Nantwich during the Words and Music Festival.

Barkham will be in Nantwich to talk about his recent book “Islander”.

For those who have not read it, it’s an evocative account of some of Britain’s most intriguing small islands.

It introduces their wild residents – from puffins to party animals, Orkney voles to nuns.

In this illustrated talk, he travels from small to ever tinier islands in search of the essence of island life.

Barkham is the award-winning author of The Butterfly Isles, Badgerlands and Coastlines, and he is also The Guardian’s natural history writer.
