In the salubrious surroundings of the recently refurbished Wessex Pavilion, the shepherdess, farmer’s wife, mother of nine, photographer and bestselling author will be sharing stories from her fascinating farming life.

Amanda first found fame on the ITV series The Dales, but it was the publication of her first book in 2014 that really installed her in the public consciousness.   The Sunday Times bestseller ‘The Yorkshire Shepherdess’ chronicles Amanda’s transformation from Huddersfield townie to rural sheep farmer.  Praised for her funny, heart-warming and inspirational narrative, the book describes how she and her family live a type of life rarely found in today’s world; on a 2,000-acre hill farm in one of the highest, most remote places in England.  A life ruled by the seasons and her animals.

Since then Amanda has appeared in numerous tv shows including; Countrywise, Masterchef, Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild, and Our Yorkshire Farm.  She has also published another two books both of which made The Sunday Times bestsellers list.

Visitors to An Evening With Amanda Owen can look forward to straight-talking first hand stories as she talks about her journey from townie teenage goth to hill shepherdess and mother of nine.  The evening will be packed with amusing anecdotes, colourful characters and inspiring stories from her two decades spent farming at Ravenseat, all delivered with Amanda’s trademark energy, humour and charm.

Uplifting, inspiring and overwhelmingly positive, perfect for anyone interested in the countryside and rural living.  Expect readings from her books, slideshows, Q&As and more – by the end of the Evening With Amanda Owen you will feel like you’ve known her all your life!

The ‘An Evening With…’ series of events will bring household names from all walks of life to the Bath & West Showground to share their stories, illuminate, educate, inform and entertain.
