Tom is a conservationist, ornithologist, sound recordist and environmentalist. Most recently he's been working for the Institute for European Environmental Policy on the European Commission's forthcoming Pollinators Initiative and case studies highlighting conservation measures that have produced large scale improvements in the status of species and habitats in Europe.

He will be sharing his lifelong passion for birds again in 2018, leading appetite-whetting bird-song walks and introducing participants to the life of Nightingales. He is part the team developing the experience at new venues.

Sam Lee

Sam Lee

How many traditional English folk singers do you know who come from North London, studied at Chelsea School of Art, worked as a forager and wilderness expert while moonlighting as a burlesque dancer – until a chance encounter led to the door of the great Scottish Traveller singer Stanley Robertson, and an extraordinary four-year apprenticeship into the arcane, living world of traditional song that few outside the Traveller and Gypsy communities have ever experienced?

Since bursting on to the folk scene at the end of the Noughties, Mercury Prize nominee Sam Lee has blazed a trail as an outstanding singer and song collector. He’s also been the driving force behind the eclectic, award-winning folk club The Nest Collective,  founder of the vital Song Collectors’ Collective, and the originator of Singing With Nightingales.
