Linda Geddes Chasing the Sun

How the Science of Sunlight Shapes our Bodies and Minds

The full story of how our relationship with the sun shapes our health, productivity and mood.

The Sun is central to humankind. Our ancestors constructed vast monuments to keep track of it and it has always dictated our daily patterns of eating, sleeping and activity as well as ouor culture and belief systems. 

Bursting with original research, Chasing the Sun tells the story of our complex relationship with the sun, from the emergence of life to the modern day, asking us to rethink the sun's significance and showing us how it helps improve our health, sleep and productivity.

Thanks very much... It was fun and the audience very responsive.

Feedback From 2017 Festival

William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!

Feedback From 2016 Festival

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.
