Presenter Michaela Strachan will be going wild in Durham next week.

The BBC Springwatch presenter will be performing her Really Wild Adventures children’s show on Tuesday at Adventure Valley, as well as signing books.

Michaela was in Durham last year to open Adventure Valley’s new £250k indoor farmyard and theatre, and was such a hit that the owners have invited her back.

Marco Calzini, from Adventure Valley, at Brasside, said: “When Michaela came to Adventure Valley last year her shows were a sell-out.

“We’ve invited her back to do a couple of shows in the morning in the theatre, which are limited to just 100 people per show.

“However, she will also be doing a show outside at 2.30pm, so everyone visiting Adventure Valley on Tuesday, August 4, will get to see her.”

Michaela said: “I’m really looking forward to coming back to Adventure Valley and doing my children’s show, Michaela Strachan’s Really Wild Adventures.

“It is all about adventures I’ve had whilst filming wildlife. It’s in poem form and tells you how to do polar bear dentistry, why you should never try to outspit a spitting cobra, and what bonnetheads, nurses and soupfins have in common.

“It’s fun, informative and very interactive.”

Michaela started off presenting children’s programmes, but today is known as a wildlife presenter and has travelled all over the world filming animals and conservation projects

Her performance in Adventure Valley’s Showtime Theatre is part of a programme of shows and animal-encounter activities taking place daily throughout the school summer holidays.
