We were very pleased to formally announce Festival of Nature 2017 dates (June 8-25) with an exciting event bringing together two of our key partners. Dame Helen Ghosh, Director General of National Trust, and Steve West, Vice Chancellor of University of West of England, made the announcement on April 5th. The occasion was a special lecture by Dame Helen Ghosh as part of UWE’s distinguished lecture series. It’s just 10 weeks until the Festival and we can’t wait to start all of the marketing!
