Award-winning wildlife photographer and filmmaker Gordon Buchanan is bringing his live tour ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears with Gordon Buchanan’ to Eastbourne in 2025.

With a life dedicated to exploring the untamed beauty of the natural world, Gordon Buchanan will visit 35 venues across England, Scotland and Wales – including Eastbourne Congress Theatre on Friday, March 14.

‘Lions and Tigers and Bears with Gordon Buchanan’ will follow the success of Gordon’s sold-out 30th-anniversary tour in 2023 and will see him recount tales from his thrilling encounters with some of nature’s most fascinating animals.

Gordon Buchanan said: “Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! It could be a line straight from The Wizard of Oz, but there’s no fiction here, just amazing facts as I get the chance to bring to life the adventures I’ve had the absolute privilege to experience.

“Bears and big cats are the undisputed icons of the animal kingdom, and I’ve spent a lifetime capturing them on film.

“From pandas in China to orphaned grizzlies in Russia, from high-altitude tigers in the Himalayas to jaguars in the depths of the Amazon. I have been fortunate enough to meet many of these incredible creatures in their natural habitats – and I love being able to share their secrets with audiences.

“There has been mud, sweat, tears, tender moments and terrifying encounters, and I can’t wait to meet more animal lovers and tell more tales as I hit the road again.”

Hailed as Scotland’s own David Attenborough, Gordon Buchanan has explored rainforests, snowy landscapes and towering mountains.

All his travels had a single mission: to capture the majestic bears and big cats on film and reveal their secrets to a global audience.

His new tour will feature his adventures with pandas, grizzlies, tigers, jaguars and more- making for a night of adventure, awe and wonder.
