Westonbirt Schools run a series of events throughout the year many of which are for the local community and the wider area to which we invite anyone who is interested to attend. These events range from lectures to open air music events and are a wonderful way to come and experience the Westonbirt schools site and enjoy the stunning grounds and gardens.

Roger Windsor, author and veterinary detective!
After studying at the University of Edinburgh Veterinary College and spending some time in practice in the UK, Roger went to work in Kenya where he became head of a Veterinary Diagnosis Laboratory. A spell at Norwich Veterinary Investigation Centre made Roger realise that he had found his niche as a vet detective, a career he went on to pursue with great success, treating large wild animals in Kenya, Argentina and Botswana.
Roger has written his stories into a successful novel that gives James Herriot a run for his money. His tales of animal woe and human frailty have an enduring appeal, and his story of helping build
Botswana’s agricultural veterinary resources is truly fascinating.
