The influence which 19th century Theory of Evolution scientist Charles Darwin continues to have on modern-day society is this month being celebrated in his home town of Shrewsbury. 
The 2019 Darwin Shrewsbury Festival takes place from 8 to 24 February and comprises 30-plus events, one of which is Mr Darwin’s Tree. A one-man show premiered in Westminster Abbey in 2009 for the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth, the 75-minute drama focuses on the relationship between the agnostic Darwin and his Christian wife, Emma. It’s performed at Shrewsbury’s Unitarian Church on Saturday 9 February.
