Dave Goulson  Bee Quest

The much-loved Sunday Times bestselling, Samuel Johnson Prize-shortlisted author goes on a hunt for bumblebees, taking us from the Salisbury Plain to Sussex hedgerows, from Poland to Patagonia. This charming book will inspire you to think about the ways in which we are all responsible for the future of our world. Through his scientific expertise and passion for conservation Goulson shows us nature's resilience against the odds, and that beauty hides in the most surprising places.

Dave Goulson studied biology at Oxford University and is now Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Sussex. Bumblebees are his passion - he has published over 250 articles on their biology, and founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust in 2006.

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!

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.
