July was a big one for the Catalyst Club: our 15th anniversary. That’s over 600 talks and over a third of my life. To mark the occasion we had a big quiz and a special video message from Martyn Krubb, MD of our sponsor, Krubb butter.
On the night we were treated to the life story of Gershwin complete with live examples of his music played by maestro David Crow. I told the strange tale of Dr Tuesday Lobsang Rampa and Dan Mudford celebrated the life of artist John Cage and how his obsession with mushrooms led to him winning the 65,000 dollar jackpot on an Italian quiz show. David even joined Dan onstage to perform Cage’s classic, 4 minutes 33 seconds of silence. All I can say is, he’s very good at sight reading.
We return in August with, amongst others, performer Marisa Carnesky.
Hope to see you there

The Joy of Natural Navigation
Clues and Signs in Sussex & the South Downs with Tristan Gooley

Join Sussex based author Tristan Gooley for an evening of natural navigation as he describes how he learnt to find his way using the sun, moon, stars, weather, plants, animals and buildings. Gooley has used the ancient techniques of natural navigation in the desert, on ice, in the jungle, on mountains, on oceans, in cities and in the English countryside and he explains how natural navigation can enrich all journeys, large and small.
Everyone who comes will learn the basic principles of how to make a map and compass from nature, including essential gems like how to make a map out of a rainbow and how to find a pub using a butterfly. Tristan passionately believes that natural navigation is not just a practical skill, but also the key to a much deeper and richer understanding of our environment. Be warned, it is slightly addictive.

This beautifully illustrated talk will include lots of clues from Sussex and the South Downs.

Tristan set up his natural navigation school in 2008 and is the author of the award-winning and bestselling books, The Natural Navigator (2010), The Walker’s Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs (2014), How to Read Water(2016) and Wild Signs and Star Paths (2018), some of the world’s only books covering natural navigation.
