Elgiva for Environment

Saturday 3rd October is our Eco Day – and we have lots on!

We kick off at 11am with the launch of Matt Writtle’s new photo book and photography exhibition, The River Meadow at the Pile of Stones. This event is free, but in order to ensure social distancing, we have restricted the numbers, so please RSVP to caroline@elgiva.com to secure a place at the 11am or 12pm introduction.

The exhibition, a series of photographs exploring the relationship between humanity and the environment in the English hinterland, runs until 31st October, is free to view whenever The Elgiva is open and is fully wheelchair accessible.

You can find out lots more about this wonderful, thought-provoking collection of photographs here, and the accompanying book is available from the Box Office at the theatre.

You can also read our interview with Matt Writtle here.

The Elgiva is also the starting point for an outdoor photography exhibition and walking trail included in the Chiltern Walking Festival (17th October – 1st November). Writtle will conduct artist-led walks every Saturday throughout October, check here for details.

The Elgiva is also celebrating the eco-focus of the day by screening Sir David Attenborough’s “A Life On Our Planet”; this unique feature documentary is Sir David’s witness statement and includes a very special, exclusive conversation between Sir David Attenborough and Sir Michael Palin.

With an introduction by Paul Jennings (Chairman of the River Chess Association) and Matt Writtle (award-winning photojournalist), this is an event not to be missed.
