The Five Weeks that Changed the World

Professor John Parker
Professor John Parker will be delivering a special evening talk to guests in the exclusive and glorious surroundings of the Botanic Garden out-of-hours.

As well as being the former Director of the Garden, John Parker is also an expert on Professor John Stevens Henslow, tutor and mentor to Charles Darwin and founder of the Cambridge University Botanic Garden.

The talk will cover Henslow’s importance in the analysis of the findings collected during the voyage of the Beagle and how his work helped to shape Darwin’s theories.

Drinks and canapés will be served before and after the talk and guests will be invited to enjoy the Garden’s glorious Glasshouse Range, which features displays from the island ecologies that so intrigued Darwin and informed his work.
£15, to include wine and canapes
