A Wild Evening with Michaela Strachan - Taunton Brewhouse
Tickets are now on sale for 'A Wild Evening with Michaela Strachan' at The Taunton Brewhouse on October 28th 2017.
This is a unique opportunity to hear about my life and career – from the early clubbing days in the 80’s on ‘The Hitman and Her’ and ‘Wacaday’, through my time on Children’s TV in the 90’s on ‘The Really Wild Show’, to my passion for wildlife and conservation films, ‘Orangutan Diaries’ – and most recently ‘Springwatch’. All illustrated with my own film footage and photography.
Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch
Springwatch 2017 came from the National Trust's Sherborne Park Estate in the Cotwolds. We were live for 12 nights over 3 weeks. Chris Packham, Martin Hughes Games, Gillian Burke and myself presented this year, bringing viewers the very best of British wildlife mixed with a bit of science, fact, fun and humour. We'll be back to Sherborne for Autumnwatch 2017 and Winterwatch 2018.
I've been booked for all kinds on talks including Countryfile Live, the Hampton Court Flower Show, Fringe On The Sea festival, The Natural History Museum and various cruise ships. I've also written for the travel section of The Mail On Sunday, presented events including The National Pet Show, videos for Visit Eastbourne and judging for Nat Geo Kids.
Being a Mum!
In between, I'm at home being a mum, doing the school run, the soccer run, the cricket run, and the 5 mile run!! (as well as a bit of yoga and pilates!)
My Book and Show
My first book! It's called 'Michaela Strachan's Really Wild Adventures', a book of fun and factual animal rhymes. It's a book of animal poems for children all about my experiences and adventures filming with wildlfe. It's full of photos and fab illustrations by Sarah Horne. It's published by Franklin Watts and can be ordered on Amazon.
We made the book into
a theatre show and took it on a tour in the Feb and Easter school holidays 2013 which was a lot of fun. I now do the show as a scaled down version of the show at events, zoos and wildlife parks including 'Yorkshire Wildlife Park', 'Camp Bestival', 'Adventure Valley' and 'Twycross Zoo'.
