A BBC and Channel 4 star will appear at a one-off evening event later this year that will see him do a speaking engagement. 

County Durham-born Matt Baker, who is most popular for his appearances on Countryfile and Matt Baker: Travels with Mum and Dad, will appear at The Garden Rooms at Tennants in Leyburn, North Yorkshire on Wednesday, June 26.

In An Evening with Matt Baker, the BAFTA and RTS award-winning presenter will be drawing on his wealth of experience both on and off the screen to talk all things nature, countryside and sustainability.

He is best known for presenting shows such as the BBC’s The One Show, Blue Peter and Countryfile, and more recently Channel 4’s Our Farm in The Dales, Travels with Mum & Dad and Travels in the Country USA.

His book, A Year on Our Farm: How the Countryside Made Me is a Sunday Times Best Seller, and his charitable work earned him an MBE in 2022, having raised over £45 million for Children in Need during his now legendary 12 consecutive years of Rickshaw Challenge rides.

After the talk, there will be a Q&A session followed by a book signing.

The Garden Rooms’ Bistro and Café will be open for dinner before the event.

Tickets, which start at £25.00, can be purchased here.
