Join Aly Wilding for a deep dive into the history and truth about the nature of wolves as she questions whether the pictures painted by mythology are really so accurate.
The role of wolves in folklore, modern fairytales and Hollywood films is often that of a crazed and dangerous beast, preying on everything from Grandmas to children. But where does this narrative come from? When did it start and what is the truth behind these incredibly complex and highly social animals?
Having spent over a decade working with both wild and captive wolves in Europe and the UK, Aly explores the role these animals play in their own environment and within our imaginations.
Aly joins us as part of our Wednesday night ‘Soup Talks’ series during which we host locals or people passing through the area to share their stories and expertise with a captive audience over a bowl of homemade soup (served before or after the talk). Often illustrated, each talk lasts approximately an hour with time for questions and informal chat. The Stable Bar is open for drinks before and after the talk and those with tickets, get 10% off on the night.
