Gavin Pretor-Pinney

An illustrated talk on waves that surround us, everywhere; in our seas, sporting events, explosions, brains, and hearts!

We live in a world of waves.

And these waves work in wonderful ways.

They are everywhere: loud and visible, silent and secretive, deep and disturbing, known, unknown, and necessary.

GAVIN PRETOR-PINNEY, author of the best-selling The Cloudspotter’s Guide and co-founder of The Idler, a magazine that defends what is deemed the noble art of doing nothing, takes waves very seriously, in a funny kind of way.

His latest book is The Wavewatcher’s Companion, which, though it may not teach you how to ride a wave, will help you tune into the shapes, colours, and delights of life’s many undulations.

Tickets - £6 (£5)

DOUBLE TICKET - £10 for two events
Gavin Pretor-Pinney at 6.30pm and Kate Rew at 8.00pm
