Really excited about playing the role of ‘Huxley’ the paleontologist in WALKING WITH DINOSAURS – The Arena Spectacular, appearing across the UK & Ireland from Summer 2018 in Newcastle, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, London, Leeds, Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin as part of its exciting World Tour.
Seen by over 9 million people in more than 250 cities around the world, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS - The Arena Spectacular, is back. Be amazed and thrilled as the greatest creatures ever to walk the earth return before your eyes.
The dazzling $20 million production features new, state of the art technology, making this the biggest and best dinosaur show in the world. Internationally renowned designers have worked with scientists to create 18 life-size creatures, including the Stegosaurus, Raptors, and the terrifying Tyrannosaurus-rex!
Marvel at the story of their 200-million-year reign on earth, as the continents split and the show transitions from the Triassic to Jurassic eras. Watch them walk, hear them roar, and see their fight for survival and supremacy depicted in almost cinematic realism in front of you.

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'.
