About

Drink a toast to the great man and then embark on a magical history tour. Shrewsbury is more than simply Darwin's birthplace. Join the festival founder, Jon King on a walk around the town to discover the childhood influences that turned a curious schoolboy into a world-class naturalist

Jon King has spent a significant amount of time researching the history of Darwin and his time in Shrewsbury. Jon was a part of those that began the Darwin Festival with the signature toast on Darwin's birthday every year on the 12th of February.
