Hear from first-class explorers, daredevils and pioneers as they share their eclectic experiences of adventure at this sell-out event co-organised by Alastair Humphreys – adventurer, author and Patron of Hope and Homes for Children.
Alastair, who was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year 2012 for his pioneering work on the concept of microadventures, will also host the evening.
The challenge is that speakers are limited to 20 slides to accompany their tales. Shown on a huge screen, each slide rolls forward automatically after just 20 seconds.
With this unusual and challenging presentation format, once the talks begin there is no stopping or going back, the audience must be ready to be swept from adventure to adventure!
The line up includes Ben Saunders, who recently led the longest human-powered polar journey in history, retracing Captain Scott’s perilous steps and completing the unfinished British Terra Nova Expedition of 1911-12. Other speakers range from AITO Travel Blogger of the Year 2013, Charlie Walker, who was also shortlisted in 2014 for his round the world cycle reporting, to Hannah Engelkamp who walked 1,000 miles around Wales, with a donkey.
Doors open at 6.30pm with the first talk at 7pm. There will be a short interval and a cash bar is available. We expect to finish at approximately 10pm.
Tickets must be purchased in advanced. Adults £20, Under 18s £17.50. All proceeds go to charity Hope and Homes for Children.
