About the event

We are delighted to be hosting, on behalf of the Green Party, an evening of lively and thoughtful conversation between Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, multi-award-winning chef, writer and broadcaster, and Christina Coleman, prospective Green Party MP. These two passionate advocates for positive change will talk about Hugh’s new book “How to Eat 30 Plants a Week”, their shared love of the British countryside, and their broader, mutual concerns around the environment.

Hugh and Christina will be sharing perspectives and hoping to inspire discussion about the way we eat, the future of green politics in the UK, and the state of nature, both locally and globally.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is known for his long-held passion for sustainable and seasonal cooking and for his television work, including the much loved River Cottage shows, and ground-breaking campaigning series such as Fish Fight, and War on Waste for BBC1, and most recently, the Big Climate Fight on Channel 4. He is also an International Vice President of the conservation charity 'Fauna and Flora International', a global NGO, represented in 48 countries, with a shared purpose to protect the diversity of life on Earth, for the survival of the planet and its people.

Christina Coleman is the Green Party candidate for the new constituency of East Grinstead and Uckfield. She has lived and worked in the area for more than 20 years and is a Wealden District Councillor for Danehill and Fletching. She was Chair of Wealden District Council until January of this year, when she stepped down to begin campaigning for the General Election. The theme for her term of office was Nature-based solutions in a time of climate and biodiversity crisis. Christina has a Master’s degree in Environment and Policy. She is an environmental advisor and advocate, giving talks in schools and colleges, and an active campaigner against inappropriate development on greenfield sites.
