Ray Mears, thought of by many as ‘the father of British bushcraft’, is set to embark on a 40-date nationwide theatre tour in 2022 – simply titled We Are Nature – An Invitation To Reconnect With The Natural World.
The tour, which starts on 22 February 2022 at the Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury, will see Ray take the audience on a journey that will explain how to get the most out of our surroundings by developing and more fully using our extraordinary natural senses of sight, sound, smell, and taste, at the same time as raising awareness of the vast richness of the natural world. By utilising both demonstration and audience participation, Ray will share knowledge that has, until now, only been accessible to students on his Woodlore courses - which many of whom have described as ‘life-changing’ and ‘as though the blinkers of modern life have been removed’, enabling them to experience the natural world in all its beauty for the very first time.
In a relaxed, accessible style, Ray will entertain audiences with a fascinating, inspirational, and educational show. He will teach them to understand what it means to see with their ears and to hear with their eyes. He will also discuss the methods and equipment he uses when tracking rare wildlife for television. He will talk about the future, taking the audience on a fascinating exploration of the advanced technology of night vision and its future benefits - is it truly possible to see in the dark?
