The Yorkshire Vet

Yorkshire Vet, Julian Norton is coming to the Forum and will be in conversation with Kate Fox.

Star of the popular Channel 5 series "The Yorkshire Vet" and author of two books: "Horses, Heifers and Hairy Pigs: The Life of a Yorkshire Vet" and "A Yorkshire Vet Through the Seasons”, Julian will be talking about his life as a vet in rural North Yorkshire, as well as his recent experiences as a television personality, and what it’s been like to follow in the footsteps of James Herriot both as a vet and an author. At the end of the conversation Julian will be taking questions from the audience.

This is sure to be a relaxed, fun and entertaining evening.
