ANTHROPOLOGIST, author and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts will be paying a visit to Christchurch with her latest theatre tour.

Digging into Britain's Past will be on stage at the Regent Centre at 7.30pm on Wednesday, October 9.

Alice has been delving making archaeology programmes, for nearly 20 years. She joined Time Team as a bone expert before going on to present anthropology and archaeology stories on BBC Two’s popular Coast series and co-presenting The Celts in 2015.

Alice has presented seven series of Digging for Britain, sharing new archaeological discoveries from across the UK on BBC Four, and she has explored the history of our towns and cities in Britain’s Most Historic Towns on Channel 4. She has written eight popular science and archaeology books, including The Celts and Tamed: Ten species that changed our world.

Alice is an accomplished public speaker and regularly tours the country giving lectures related to her books and television programmes. She has conducted many panel debates and interviews. In May 2015, she interviewed Sir David Attenborough live on stage at the Science Museum, and later in the year, Richard Dawkins at the RI. As well as being rated the 2nd most influential woman-scientist-on-Twitter, Alice is also an experienced compere, and has hosted numerous awards ceremonies and launch events, including prestigious events at the Natural History Museum and the Royal Society. She has even been known to give after dinner speeches.

In this exclusive tour, her third of UK theatres, Alice will share insights, anecdotes and behind-the-scenes stories from her personal journey to explore Britain’s past, with footage from her programmes and excerpts from her books. The show will finish with 20 minutes Q&A.

Tickets are priced £22, concessions £20 (including the 50p Regent Centre development fee). Visit or call the box office on 01202 499199 to book or for more details.
