Presenter of global hit series River Monsters Jeremy Wade undertakes a live UK tour in 2014

Jeremy Wade, the  presenter of the global hit series River Monsters, biology teacher and angler turned seat-of-the-pants explorer will undertake a live tour to 13 venues in March 2014.  This is a rare opportunity to see Jeremy live for an evening of mystery, mayhem and monster wrangling.

What do you do when something grabs your hand in a pitch-dark underwater cave or when your aircraft engine fails above the Amazon jungle or when a doctor tells you about fish that leave gunshot-like wounds in their victims? And why is it all worthwhile?

Man-sized piranhas, fish that electrocute, nine-foot river sharks (yes, river sharks) … You’ve seen the programmes; now find out what it takes to deliver these outlandish creatures to the TV screen, with video footage, tall stories and on-stage demonstrations.

There will also be a chance for audiences to put their own questions to Jeremy - but catching him when he’s not on an Amazon riverboat or living in a cockroach-infested hut is just like catching a fish: you must be in the right place at the right time….(see tour schedule below)

The fifth thrilling series of River Monsters starts on ITV in January  2014  (TX date TBC) this season Jeremy Wade will be, amongst other adventures, tracking down legendary mutant fish in the nuclear wastelands of Russia’s Chernobyl, and on a quest for perhaps the most famous freshwater cryptid ever — Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster.
