An Evesham Festival of Words Event: In 1994 TV Producer David Parker spent the summer recording interviews with much-loved author Laurie Lee, a man who generally did not ‘do’ television. David shared those lost recordings at a fabulous Festival of Words event in 2018. Here we have the chance to repeat a very popular 2021 event and join David for a special guided tour of the village of Slad, enshrined in much of Laurie Lee’s work. Enjoy the stunning scenery around Slad on this beautiful walk, pausing at times to listen to recordings of Laurie Lee’s own voice talking about some of what you will see.

Apart from Laurie Lee, David has enchanted audiences with his talks about the naturalist, Johnny Kingdom, and The Flying Scotsman. A real Festival favourite! Tickets £14

Note: the terrain is uneven and there are some gradients. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear suitable footwear. Why not stay on and treat yourself to a pub lunch after the walk.
