Venue: The Idler Academy, on Saturday.

Lucy Cooke is a National Geographic explorer, zoologist, award-winning documentary filmmaker and best-selling author. She is the presenter of National Geographic’s ‘Freaks and Creeps’ and BBC’s ‘Talk to the Animals’.

She presents “Lucy Cooke’s Menagerie of the Misunderstood” in which she takes a wry look at some of mankind’s biggest mistakes, misconceptions and myths about animals through science and popular culture, from Aristotle to Disney. Expect stories of feminist hyenas, successful sloths and penguin prostitution as Lucy rebrands the animal kingdom according to scientific fact as oppose to fiction.
