***Win Simon Watt’s new book***

For a chance to win a signed copy of Simon Watt’s brand new book The Ugly Animals - We Can’t all be Pandas, book your tickets for The Ugly Animal Roadshow or Dissections Uncut anytime between Friday 5 September and Wednesday 10 September.

Join writer, scientist and TV presenter Simon Watt for a fun family comedy show with a conservation twist. Simon is president for life of the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. He joins us to tell you all about the strange but vital creatures recently crowned the world’s ugliest endangered species. Can you learn to love a fat purple frog with a nose like a pig? Or a bright blue slug whose bum drops off when it’s scared? Come along and vote for your favourite ugly animal.

Suitable for ages 7+

Simon is signing his book

Simon will also be signing copies of his new book, Ugly Animals – We Can’t all be Pandas between 14:00 and 15:00 on Saturday 13 September. The book aims to shine a light on some of the many ignored and unloved wonders of the animal kingdom. Their hideousness hides their incredible biology and means that we may not have noticed that they need our help. Copies of the book will be available to buy.
