Last November Chris Packham and Paul Goldstein wowed and shocked two huge charity audiences in equal measure with a dazzling and provocative wild night out.This year four venues across the UK will benefit from this outspoken and often hilarious wildlife double act. They travelled to Antarctica together in December and astonishingly are still talking. They are returning to the ice this autumn. This series of charity lectures will draw on much of their image catalogue of the last 12 months and some other favourite portfolios.Chris and Paul have worked together for almost fifteen years in various continents and will be expanding that repertoire next year. Both are extremely critical of their own and particularly each others photography, both are also frequently in deep water with their strong views, both are remarkable photographers with large followings.These four evenings should be spectacular, you have been suitably warned

Opened in 1931, mainly to act as a venue for the Leith Hill Music Competition, Dorking Halls was the property of the festival until WWII during which they were commandeered by the Meat Marketing Board and the army. In 1946, the halls were thriving, with community events being held there, including flower shows, scout meetings and dances. They were refurbished in 1997 and the venue became a location for theatre, comedy and music, as well as films.
The halls are located in the centre of town and there is parking available at the side and rear of the venue as well as opposite in the council offices car park.
