Win family tickets to Museum opening with Steve Backshall

BAFTA nominated TV presenter, naturalist, writer and all round adventurer Steve Backshall is coming to Manchester as special guest of The Manchester Museum as part of the gala unveiling of the groundbreaking Living Worlds gallery on 13 April.

Taking your inspiration from nature, what can you invent to make the world a better place? Your entry could be in the form of a drawing, photo or poem, in fact the only limit to the competition is your imagination.

As part of his day at the museum he will meet three lucky families of Manchester Confidential readers to explore a mutual passion for the living world.

Backshall is known for his hands-on approach to the natural world - an approach that has inspired a whole new generation of young nature lovers with a series of programmes including Deadly 60, Springwatch and The Really Wild Show.

If your family (of up to five members) wants to win a money-can’t-buy encounter with Deadly 60′s Steve Backshall get your thinking caps on with our Eco Invention competition.
