Every year we organise over 100 events at venues throughout the UK. Our mountaineers, explorers, adventurers and extreme sports and endurance athletes give first-hand accounts of their remarkable journeys, careers or even their entire lives, transporting audiences on an inspirational journey to the wildest destinations on Earth.
This UK stage tour provides a fascinating insight into Mark Beaumont’s cycling career, having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds this 18,000 mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day.
One of the best young climbers in the world, Hazel Findlay presents a talk about her life and climbs to explore how we can use a sport such as climbing – something that we are passionate about - to put us in hard places that push us beyond what we thought we were capable of; how in this struggle we can discover the way our minds work and how to ‘hack’ them, so that we can enjoy the experiences we want and not be limited by fear
Sir Chris Bonington was the first mountaineer on the lecture circuit and, this autumn, he will present his “Life & Times” in an audio visual account, covering his sixty years spent in the mountains. With original images and raw footage, this is a rare opportunity to hear about some of the greatest expeditions of the twentieth century.
