Ian and Anne McCarthy

Bluebottle’s Wild Journey Home

11.30am to 12.30pm

Fowey Town Hall, £6, Children under 10 free

Award winning wildlife cameraman, Ian McCarthy and his wife Anne fell in love whilst howling to wolves in the darkness of a snowy Montana winter night. They were filming for the BBC Natural History Unit at the time. Ian has spent much of his life living amongst wolves and bears, eagles and ravens, wild geese, penguins and whales. Anne travelled with Sir David Attenborough for three years on expeditions to North America, Thailand, Venezuela and New Zealand. Together they have written a fairy tale for children, inspired by their time spent in remote wildernesses. Bluebottle’s Wild Journey Home is a traditional fairy story set firmly in the 21st century. It is the story of an epic journey against time and against the elements and of the importance of friendship and family. The story is filled with magic and love for the natural world. The only way Bluebottle is going to get home on time is to ask for the help of Wolf, Eagle, Bear and Swan on his wild journey home. NB All those attending this event must have tickets, including the complimentary tickets for children under 10 years of age.
