We have a number of events in our talks schedule. If you are the vicinity of one, why not come along and find out about Wader Quest, waders and their conservation.


Talks Schedule All talks in the 2020-21 season were cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19. We hope normal service will be resumed by the 2021-22 season. Scheduled talks shown below.

Fees from talks will go to Rick Simpson, who is a self-employed speaker, and writer, and as such these fees are subject to taxation. In addition the speaker pays an annual advertising fee to Wader Quest. All talks, regardless of the title, are given by Rick and Elis Simpson with the primary intention of promoting, and raising funds for, Wader Quest. All money raised from sales, donations and subscription sign-ups resulting from these talks goes direct to Wader Quest.
