Premier Post - ANDY CAVE Lecture Tour AUTUMN 09

This Autumn, Andy Cave bringing his best-selling book Learning to Breathe alive with a series of lectures at 13 venues around the UK.

Andy Cave is a figurehead for British Mountaineering, with more than 20 years of desperate routes to his name. Aged just 20, he became one of the youngest mountaineers ever to climb the North Face of the Eiger at that time, an achievement made all the more remarkable as just 4 years earlier Andy was working 3000 feet underground at Grimethorpe Colliery in South Yorkshire.

Andy’s story of transition from Yorkshire coal miner to one of the UK’s best climbers is a gripping and compelling tale. Aged 21, Andy cashed in his miners' pension and went to Asia for five months with Joe Simpson, beginning on his quest to seek out new routes and dedicate his life to mountaineering. His talk is a mix of his experiences of the 1984-85 miner's strike and his early mountaineering trips culminating in his traumatic expedition to the perilous North Face of Changabang in the Himalayas in 1997 - an expedition in which his climbing partner paid the ultimate price and which forced Andy to question his decision to become a mountaineer.

You could travel to the far flung planet of Barnsley?!

In reply to rebecca varley:

No Midlands venues either??? (and I mean West Mids, not Loughborough!)
Not one there that I can travel to :(

Any one been to one of his talks when he is a main speaker... went to llanberis mountain film festival and he struggled abit but that may have been as he was the last person on and it'd been a long day.

Loved his books

In reply to gethin_allen: ...and also no Sheffield date because we will be doing a one-nighter with Ian Parnell and Andy Kirkpatrick in October in Sheffield - should be a good night - details coming soon.
Shad - on 03 Sep 2009
In reply to idiotproof (Buxton MC): Yeah, I saw him in Barnsley library doing a talk, he was excellent. He seemed modest but witty. He arrived a few minutes late, having arrived straight from the Peak for a climb. Nice one.

In reply to rebecca varley: Thats a real nationwide tour

In reply to Big Steve: No clearly its not, Andy C has a lot on this autumn, which is why at the top of the post, he is billed as doing a series of talks with us, not a big UK wide tour!

Looking foreward to seeing Andy at Y Galeri Caernarfon on the 25th, should be good :)

I'm going to see him in Harlech, didn't even realise there was a theatre there! Has anyone been there or going?

In reply to rebecca varley: London?
Rebecca Varley on 18 Sep 2009 - host86-165-134-229.range86-165.btcentralplus.com
In reply to francoisecall: Andy is doing a talk at the RGS on 19th October and at another venue in London in November I think (not organised by us) so that pretty much covers London.

> (In reply to rebecca varley) London?

good to see london being boycotted. it gets everything else. good to see that the countries "arse end of nowheres" gets the lectures!!

i'll try and make one if the missus lets me.
Clogwyn y Gwin on 23 Sep 2009
In reply to kezecuk: Going to see him in Caernarfon. The theatre in Harlech is ok. enjoy.

In reply to rebecca varley:

That's a shame. I really fancied watching Andy Cave's talk. The itinerary is a little to northern for my meagre budget. Are there any plans for some of the other speakers to head southwards over the next few months?

In reply to nickstephens:

I was wondering the same thing! I'm just north of London. Seeing Andy would be great, guess I'll have to wait for a bigger tour. Would love to know if any climbers are heading south soon though.

In reply to jackcarr: Hi, I hear Epsom in Surrey is not all that Northern? Just south of London? Mr KP will be doing a big tour next year.

Cheers,

Rebecca

In reply to rebecca varley:

Yeah I know where it is! Its not overly difficult to get there for me, half way around the M25 really, would just prefer north/central London thats all!
nickstephens - on 01 Oct 2009
In reply to rebecca varley:

Cool, if we are doing requests. Can the tour be diverted slightly west towards the west country :D
Rebecca Varley on 02 Oct 2009 - host217-44-191-160.range217-44.btcentralplus.com
In reply to nickstephens: He came to Taunton last time - how's that for you?!

nickstephens - on 03 Oct 2009
In reply to rebecca varley:

Would be nice if he was coming down to Taunton this time :-)
KarlH - on 17 Oct 2009
In reply to rebecca varley:

I was going to see him in Epsom but tickets are £16.50 each which has priced me out of it. I've seen a few speakers on lecture tours and this seems to be expensive in comparison. Is this the same price elsewhere or is the theatre marking tickets up?
Days on Rock - on 17 Oct 2009
In reply to rebecca varley: Went to see Andy in Abergavenny, and was very impressed. The Changabang section alone is worth it, and the slideshows ANdy had prepared were really inspiring. Top notch stuff. Looking forward to seeing Ian Parnell again in December now!

In reply to KarlH:

don't forget rebecca's mark-up.
Rebecca Varley on 19 Oct 2009 - host217-44-191-160.range217-44.btcentralplus.com
In reply to KarlH: Hi I'm afraid the theatres choose the ticket price, based on what they sell other lectures at. If a group of you from a local club/wall would like to go, give me a shout and I will see if I can get you a group discount.

Cheers

I saw Andy at the Mawldan theatre in Cardigan last Friday and it was extremely inspiring. I also got my books signed and had a chat with this really understated guy.

In reply to rebecca varley: Enjoyed his lecture in Rhyl on Wednesday - very good value too! Recommended!
Speakers from the Edge - on 29 Nov 2009
In reply to rebecca varley: Last chance to see Andy Cave before Christmas with his Learning to Breathe talk - he will be at The Lowry in Salford on Wed 2nd December.
Speakers from the Edge - on 30 Nov 2009
In reply to rebecca varley: You can no longer book tickets online for Andy's talk at The Lowry as the stalls are sold out but there are still seats available in the circle - you need to book via telephone on 0843 208600 or buy tickets on the door on the night.
