Highlights of Myanmar

Everything went to plan and again WE gave us a wonderful holiday. “with World Expeditions you will be travelling with like-minded people.” Its true! On every trip we found that the people were of a similar mindset. I don’t know how its done, but others in the party agreed that that had been their experience also. Lovely to do business with World Expeditions yet again.

Chris Bonington: My Climbing Life

Chris Bonington: My Climbing Life

Wednesday Feb 11, 2015 - 07:00:00 PM
1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR

 

Join us for an audience with pre-eminent mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington CVO CBE DL and special guests to celebrate his wonderful climbing life.

For this event Sir Chris will be in conversation with former MHT Chair, Julie Summers, discussing his life and career amongst the mountains.  Spanning more than sixty years, Chris’s outstanding career has had its fair share of drama. His experiences range from jubilant to harrowing with the loss of many friends during groundbreaking expeditions in the 1970s and 1980s.  

From his home in the Lake District to the Greater Ranges of the Himalayas and South America with a visit to the Arctic regions thrown in for good measure, Sir Chris has enjoyed an active life in the mountains, which continues with his most recent climb revisiting the Old Man of Hoy over the summer.

 

Please note the change of date for this event.

DATE: Wednesday 11 February

START: 7:00 pm -  Doors open at 6:30 | FINISH: 8.30 pm
