About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

As part of the Festival of Nature 2018, Wriggle are delighted to present Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean, a talk by Jonathan White.

After nearly losing his 65’ wooden schooner boat in a large Alaskan tide, writer, sailor, and surfer Jonathan White vowed to understand the tide. He knew the moon had something to do with it, but what exactly? He read a book, then two. Ten years later, he had read three hundred books and criss-crossed the seven seas to see the largest, fastest, scariest, and most amazing tides in the world. In China he confronted the Silver Dragon, a twenty-five foot tidal bore that races eighty miles up the Qiantang River; at London’s Royal Society, he dug into the earliest Western tide science, which preoccupied thinkers from Da Vinci to Galileo to Newton; and in the Arctic he followed an Inuit elder down a small hole through thick winter ice to gather fresh blue mussels in the cavities left by low tide.

With photographs, stories, and short readings, Jonathan takes his audiences on an enthralling journey into the surprising and poetic workings of the tide. Do not miss this fantastic opportunity to hear Jonathan  speak about his work, as part of the 2018 Festival of Nature.

About Festival of Nature 2018

Festival of Nature celebrates its 15th birthday in 2018, and started here in Bristol before stretching down the River Avon to cover Bath as well. It’s a feature project of Bristol Natural History Consortium, a charity on a serious, admirable mission to engage people of all ages with the natural world, through a range of collaborative action and activity. The BNHC started way back in 2003, when 6 different organisations across Bristol joined forces to work collaboratively on flagship environmental communication projects. In 2008 the BHNC gained charitable status, and now has 13 organisations working together to connect people and nature. The UK's biggest celebration of the natural world, Festival of Nature features two free weekends of activity in Bath and Bristol, and a range of special ticketed events.
