Nature Table

Random draw closed

Join comedian, presenter and writer Sue Perkins at London Zoo, as she hosts Nature Table: a new Radio 4 comedy series celebrating the natural world and all its funny eccentricities.

Taking the format of a ‘show and tell’, Sue is joined by top celebrity guests from the worlds of comedy and natural history. Each guest brings an item linked to the wild world to share with the audience, as a springboard for an enlightening and funny discussion. There are also fun games and challenges to reveal more astonishing facts. We’ll also hear from some of the London Zoo staff and studio audience, as they bring us their own natural history ‘show and tells’ for Sue and the guests to discuss.

The show has a simple clear brief: to positively celebrate and promote the importance of all our planet’s wonderfully wild flora and fauna… and have a giggle.

Nature Table has been created by award-winning comedy producer and keen whale-watcher Simon Nicholls (Bridget Christie’s Utopia, Ed Reardon’s Week and Genius with Dave Gorman) and is a BBC Studios production.

Tickets will be allocated by random draw.

You can register at any time until 10pm on Wednesday 8 January.

You can apply for a maximum of two tickets per recording and if you are successful in the random draw you will only receive tickets for one recording in the series.

Good luck!
