GLOBE-TROTTING wilderness and nature photographer John Beatty, from Bamford, will share his love for Kinder Scout and other wild places around the world in his Wild Vision audio-visual show at Hope Valley College on Wednesday April 25, at 7.30pm.

Proceeds from the £3 admission charge will go to the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation, and refreshments will be provided by the school Parent Teachers’ Association.

The show is a highlight of the Kinder 80 Festival, a week of nearly 30 walks, talks and other events in and around the Peak District marking the 80th anniversary of the Mass Trespass, after which five ramblers were imprisoned for walking on the moors.
