Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess: An Evening with Amanda Owen

Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess: An Evening with Amanda Owen

at G Live, Guildford

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

This show was rescheduled from 2nd March 2021.

In this frank, funny and informative new show, Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen shares heart-warming tales and honest anecdotes from her remarkable farming, family life in North Yorkshire. It’s life that has almost gone in today’s modern world, one ruled by animals and the four seasons.

We’ll hear how Amanda grew up in Huddersfield, but was inspired by James Herriot’s books to leave her town life behind and head to the countryside. After working as a freelance dairy milker and alpaca shearer, she eventually settled down as a shepherdess at Ravenseat, one of the highest and most remote places in England, where she has raised a flock of 1000 sheep and a family of 9 children with husband Clive.

Accompanied by some of Amanda’s wonderful photography, we’ll experience the highs and lows of the farming year, which in 2018 included the extremes of the Beast from the East and one of the hottest summers on record. Ravenseat is a tenant farm and may not stay in the family, so when Amanda saw a nearby farmhouse up for sale, she knew it was her chance to create roots for the next generation. The old house needed a lot of renovation and money was tight, but with impressive resourcefulness Amanda set about the work herself, with some help from the family, a visiting plumber and a travelling monk. It’s fair to say things did not go according to plan.

We’ll hear how Amanda juggles life as a shepherdess, home renovator and mother to nine children with life as a best-selling author, and also being taken to the nation’s hearts with the Channel 5 hit series Our Yorkshire Farm. Funny, charming and filled with unforgettable characters, Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess will delight anyone who has dreamt of a new life in the country.
