Option 1:  ‘Richard Dawkins in Bristol’ speaker event - Saturday 24th August 10.45am – 6pm at the Wills Memorial Building seating 500+ in this fantastic Gothic venue. The Great Hall is long and rather narrow, and consequently we decided it would be fairest to price the seats according to the view they offer.

Option 2.The Ancestor’s Trail’ weekend – beginning with the Richard Dawkins speaker event above, why not extend your weekend to include this ‘biological pilgrimage’ in Somerset along the beautiful Quantock Hills. This will includes 2 evenings of entertainment, more speakers, transport from Bristol and full board accommodation at Halsway Manor (Saturday 24th – Monday 26th August). Camping at Halsway or local B&B are also available. Attendance at the Richard Dawkins event (Option 1)  is INCLUDED in your payment for an Ancestor’s Trail weekend ticket (equivalent to a £30 ticket – you can upgrade to premium if you wish via our Paypal payment below).

Once purchased – tickets will be sent by post well in advance of the event – £1.50 is added to your ticket price for ticket printing and postage .

PLEASE NOTE: tickets are selling fast for Option 2 but  B&B (you’ll need a car for this option), shared rooms and camping (at Halsway Manor) are all still available  although private double/twin rooms are now SOLD OUT.

If you have already bought a ticket for option 1 – but subsequently decide you wish to upgrade to option 2, please email me at chris.jenord@ancestorstrail.net.

Any funds raised beyond our costs will go towards the Alfred Russel Wallace Memorial Fund which has commissioned the creation of a life sized bronze statue of Wallace to be displayed at London’s  Natural History Museum. Through purchasing a ticket you will be adding your own personal donation, directly contributing to the long overdue recognition Wallace so richly deserves.
