Lindsay McCrae
My Penguin Year: Life with the Emperors

A special event for the whole family!

Saturday 2 November, 3pm
(doors open 2.30pm)
Drive Methodist Church, The Drive, Sevenoaks, TN13 3AB

Who can forget the incredible story of emperor penguins in last year's hit BBC wildlife series Dynasties?  

The BAFTA award-winning cameraman Lindsay McCrae is coming to Sevenoaks to speak about his adventure to the end of the Earth, spending a year filming the outstanding episode.

"Twelve men have walked on the moon. But how many have spent an entire season with the Emperors in Antarctica? Maybe more, likely less. Lindsay McCrae has – and this is his wonderful and frank story. So turn off the heating, put on your gloves and head deep south into a frozen land of dreams and nightmares, all played out in the world of beautiful Emperors." – Chris Packham

With words and stunning images, don't miss what promises to be a truly fascinating event!
