An Evening with…Annabel Abbs

June 5 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

£8.00 – £20.00

Come and Discover your Night Self  

And Grab a few Sleep Tips

Annabel Abbs will be sharing her  years of research on how our brains rewire after dark. She will explain why night time (even sleepless nights) can be the optimal time for reflection, creativity, and adventure.  For over a year, Annabel spent her wakeful nights wild sleeping, star-gazing, moth hunting, glow-worm tracking and walking (alongside other adventures).  Like thousands before her, she also wrote, worked and drew when she couldn’t sleep. Gradually her nights transformed into magical places of wonder and of creative profit. She also learnt to sleep. In this talk Annabel will also introduce us to some of history’s greatest night creators – from Louise Bourgeois to Virginia Woolf – and explain why embracing the night might be the best possible way to live a fuller, and better-slept, life.

Annabel Abbs is an award-winning writer of highly researched fiction and non-fiction, including the international best seller, The Language of Food (optioned by CBS Studios), Windswept: Why Women Walk, voted a top ten 2021 travel book and, most recently, Sleepless: Discovering the Power of the Night Self (a Times 2024 Book of the Week).

As Annabel Streets she wrote 52 Ways to Walk: The Surprising Science of Walking for Wellness and Joy, One Week at a Time and co-wrote The Age-Well Project: Easy Ways to a Longer, Healthier, Happier Life. She has written for a wide range of titles, including the GuardianTelegraphTatler and Good Housekeeping, and has appeared on BBC Ramblings, Sky News, Times Radio with Mariella Frostrup and  BBC Woman’s Hour.
