Leading glaciologist Professor Jemma Wadham reflects upon a quarter century of adventures and discoveries across the globe.
Professor Jemma Wadham has devoted her career to the glaciers that cover one-tenth of the Earth’s land surface. Today, however, these ‘ice rivers’ are in peril. High up in the Alps, Andes and Himalaya, once-indomitable glaciers are retreating; in Antarctica, meanwhile, thinning ice sheets are releasing meltwater to sensitive marine foodwebs, and may be unlocking vast quantities of methane stored deep beneath them. The potential consequences for humanity are almost unfathomable.

Join us in the Long Gallery with the artist Tom Robinson as he introduces his new exhibition 'Red Day' at Messums Wiltshire.
Tom starts with a one-dimensional idea of colour and form and gradually establishes a structure and colour key, describing his work as ‘reaching for something hovering behind the surface: the meta image. The paint is applied thickly, soaking brushes in pots of paint rather than a palette. Then reworking the paint, scraping it back with chisels or small planes of wood planes.
It can take over a year to finish a painting and Robinson places great importance on time for contemplation.
Tom Robinson grew up in Dorset and trained at The Royal Drawing School in London. He moved from London to Jersey before settling in Norfolk where he now lives and works.
Join us in the barn gallery for a day of talks on the nature of materials within contemporary architectural practice.
We will be joined by some of the leading minds and innovators within architecture as they discuss how we can better use resources and learn from our natural environment to find solutions to some of the problems affecting building, design and the environment.
Join Caryn Mandabach (producer of PEAKY BLINDERS) and Alan Yentob in a conversation celebrating the power of storytelling at Messums Wiltshire, in aid of the KHULA Education.
This year KHULA Education, supported by the David Rattray Foundation, are launching a new programme in KwaZulu-Natal which will encourage the older school children to tell their own stories orally. It will be a way for them to improve their confidence, their presentation skills and hopefully, over time, be a way to bring in revenue to the community through tourism.
