Public Talk


Our guest speaker for the Convivium Festival is Nick Hunt, author of Walking the Woods and the Water: In Patrick Leigh Fermor’s Footsteps from the Hook of Holland to the Golden Horn and Where the Wild Winds Are: Walking Europe’s Winds from the Pennines to Provence.

Nick Hunt walked the invisible pathways of four of Europe’s great named winds – the Helm, the Bora, the Foehn and the Mistral – to explore their effects on landscapes, people and cultures. He talks about his journeys on foot from the Pennines to Provence, the Alps to the Dalmatian coast, and what he learned about the connections between wind, spirit and soul.

From the Publisher’s Website:


“Nick Hunt has walked and written across much of Europe. His articles have appeared in the Economist, the Guardian and other publications, and he also works as a storyteller and co-editor for the Dark Mountain Project. His first book, Walking the Woods and the Water (Nicholas Brealey, 2014), was a finalist for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year. He currently lives in Bristol.”
