Synopsis

Christopher Skaife - The Ravenmaster: My Life with the Ravens at the Tower of London


Interweaving history, naturalhistory and myth, this is the first behind-the-scenes account of life with the ravens at Britain’s most famous national monument. Over the years in which he has cared for the physical and mental wellbeing of these remarkable birds Christopher Skaife has come to know them like no-one else. Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk, says Skaife is “A born storyteller with a gift for banter…It is a beguiling, fascinating and highly amusing account of the strangely magical birds.”

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
