A MULTI-MEDIA presentation celebrating the spectacular Dorset and East Devon coast is set to be held in Alton.
Jurassic Journey will be presented by Ben Osborne at Alton Village Hall from 7.30pm on Friday as part of the Live and Local scheme.
Showcasing photography, video and sound recordings, the presentation celebrates the story of the Dorset and East Dorset Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
The show also features music composed by Sammy Hurden, poetry by Matt Harvey and two engaging characters Tilly and Cliff created from objects found by artist Lal Hitchcock.
Mr Osborne has been a freelance photographer for 25 years and regularly works with BBC film crews shooting publicity and editorial stills for major wildlife series including Blue Planet and Planet Earth.
In 2007 he won Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year and he is best known for his images of Antarctica in the book of the BBC series Life in the Freezer which he presented to a packed village hall a few years ago.
The photographer has proved so popular with villagers this will be his fourth visit to Alton.
Organisers said: “Ben’s friendly commentary and humour alongside the sounds and images take the concept of an ‘audio visual presentation’ to a whole new level.
“Jurassic Journey is a must for anyone who enjoys photography, travel or is interested in what happens when four artists take a close (and occasionally sideways) look at one of the most popular coastal destinations in Britain.”
The show is suitable for adults and children over 12 and lasts for two-anda- quarter hours with wine and soft drinks available.
Tickets cost £8.50 for adults and £6 for students and are available from Alton Post Office and Newsagents, Sue Green on 01538 703222 or Linda Goodwin on 01538 703104.
All proceeds from the night will go to Alton Village Hall.
