An Evening with TV’s Kate Humble

Meet Kate Humble, star of the much loved BBC Television programmes, Spring Watch and Autumn Watch, as she talks with BBC Radio Lancashire’s John Gillmore and delights audiences by introducing her new book, Thinking on my Feet: The Small Joy of Putting One Foot in Front of the Other.

I’ve discovered that going for a daily walk has become as essential to me feeling good for the rest of the day as that first cup of tea. But I would argue that all I am doing is responding to a natural need perhaps we all have. Humans have always been migrants, the physiological urge to be nomadic is deep-rooted in all of us and perhaps because of that our brains are stimulated by walking. I solve all sorts of problems, formulate ideas, work things out to that gentle rhythm of self-propelled movement. – Kate Humble

Date: Thurs, October 18th, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Venue: The Croston Theatre, Westholme School, Meins Road, Blackburn BB2 6QU

Admission includes the price of a hardback copy of Thinking on My Feet which Kate will sign on the evening.

The event will take the form of an interview with John Gillmore and will last approximately one hour, this will include the opportunity for audience members to ask questions.

Kate will sign books after the event. The close time for this event is an approximatation of when it is anticipated signing will finish.
