On Monday evening we went to the Night of Adventure, at the Vue.
This event featured a very entertaining collection of speakers from across the spectrum of expeditions, adventure and travel talking about their various exploits, and was in aid of Hope & Homes for Children for which £7,500 was raised. See #NightofAdventure on Twitter.
The large venue was sold out, which was impressive.
We enjoyed short presentations by Alastair Humphreys, Mark Beaumont, Andrew Murray, Osbert Lancaster, George Bullard, Jamie Andrew, Scott Napier, Don Lennox, Paul Diffley, Ronald Turnbull and Simon Varwell. I went to Simon’s book launch for Up the creek without a mullet last year. Always entertaining, and he had the audience chuckling on several occasions.
