A Cloud Appreciation Society cloud talk,
London, 19 May

Cloud Appreciation Society founder, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, is very excited to be giving an illustrated clouds talk at the first ever Words in The Park festival that is taking place over the weekend of 19-20 May in London’s beautiful Holland Park.

The talk will take place in the marquee for Opera Holland Park, which is situated right in the middle of this small and perfectly formed city park. Gavin will be giving a crash course in cloudspotting, showing some of the many different types of cloud formation, as well as showing some of the best clouds that look like things sent in by members of the Cloud Appreciation Society, some of which appear in our new book ‘Clouds That Look Like Things‘.

This will be a great opportunity for London members to get together. Gavin will be around after the talk, and would love to meet any Society members who come up to say hello. He will also be signing copies of all the Cloud Appreciation Society books, which will be available at the event.

    Hello Gavin, what a great event! I am going to try to be there. My wish is to one day help you stage a wavewatchers talk too after reading how you decided to feel the waves instead of fighting them. Was it the wave cloud in Oz that inspired you to write the wavewatchers guide?

    Yes, seeing the Morning Glory cloud in Australia did help me to realise that cloudspotting and wavewatching share more in common that you might at first think.
    I have given a lot of talks about waves too. One of these days I’m going to step up on stage and start talking about the wrong one.
    I hope that you can make it along this weekend. It would be great to meet you.
