Event Details

A Celebration of Inspirational Ideas

Michael Morpurgo will be giving a reading of A Song of Gladness, accompanied by beautiful illustrations by Emily Gravell, for the York Festival of Ideas’ special anniversary launch event on Monday 7th June at 5pm

From a blackbird in a Devon garden to leopards in the African savanna, A Song of Gladness reminds us all of our connection with nature, and with each other, and the urgent need for us to join together in caring for the planet and every creature in it. Discover what idea inspired this story, and where other well-known Festival speakers have found their inspiration.

Book your tickets on the York Festival of Ideas website!

A Song of Gladness will only be available to Watch Again until Sunday 20 June.
