Wilderness Wood to host eco-celebrity Alistair McGowan on October 7th
Beyond Green sister company Wilderness Wood is a 62-acre productive woodland in East Sussex, a quaint village located one hour south of London via train. The Wood hosts a variety of eco-initiative for nature appreciators large and small, from guided hikes that search out edible fungus, bugs and woodland monsters to handmade furniture and locally sourced, organic food available for purchase. Accompanying the many activities provided during the day, Wilderness Wood has also presented a series of monthly candlelit dinners to celebrate unique and ambitous efforts taken by individuals of varying disciplines. The upcoming dinner is particularly special, hosting the accomplished actor, impressionist and eco-advocate Alistar McGowan on October 7th at 7:30PM.
Alistair is probably best known for his impersonations on BBC1’s BAFTA-winning The Big Impression, but his career has ranged from irreverent comedy to serious drama, together with writing and directing. Alongside his career as a performer, Alistair is a passionate spokesman on environmental issues. He’s helped promote campaigns for Sustrans, the Woodland Trust, Trees for Cities and Recycle Now and is an ambassador for WWF-UK. He developed a green charter for the film industry and in partnership with Zac Goldsmith, Emma Thompson and Greenpeace, bought a strip of land to block development of the proposed third runway at Heathrow. He’s never owned a car.
