/ ANDY KIRKPATRICK talks Feb-April 2014
Andy Kirkpatrick returns in Spring 2014 with his fifth UK lecture tour. Since his last tour in Autumn 2011 Andy has been busy climbing all over the world. This time around the maverick mountaineer will be talking about climbing El Cap with his 13-year-old daughter (as featured in CBBC’s My Life series), revisiting Norway’s Troll Wall, his latest winter expedition to attempt the North Face of the Eiger and his current trip to Antarctica to climb Ulvetanna.
As usual, it's likely to include some very fast talking, some possibly not very pc jokes and some pretty epic pictures.

Looks good shame its nowhere near Leeds
Salford's not far!
Think I'll head over the for Edinburgh date, looks great.
Got tickets to the Salford one
Hi - I tried very hard but the several venues I tried in Leeds would not take the show. We used to use Leeds City Varieties but they are no longer keen to have our speakers. It's not always possible to go everywhere - we would choose to come to Leeds if we had a venue that would programme the talk. Any ideas welcome :-)
NEW DATE ADDED in Sheffield - Thursday 6th March at Sheffield University Students Union in The Foundry. For more information please visit http://sivtickets.com/event/andykirkpatrickinappropriateclimbing
Leeds Uni might take you, theres a lot of climbers at the uni and they have some decent venues.
I did contact your office and leave a message but no reply as yet.
I'd be keen on bringing the show over to Norwich @ Highball Climbing Centre
For Leeds, have you tried Hyde Park Picture House, Brudenell Social Club, Leeds University Union, Leeds Met Union, The Carriageworks? Would be great to get Andy to Leeds if possible!
Am I missing an obvious place that is anywhere near the lakes?
Lancaster is the nearest . Not too bad if you live south lakes
Is it appropriate to take my 8 year old? Or is it a bit "blue" as my gran would say?
Come to Milton Keynes please
I'd say 'too blue' for an 8 year old!
Hi, Andy's talks are always way too blue I'm afraid, so no I wouldn't recommend it for your 8 year old! General guidance is 14 years and upwards at parental discretion! Thanks.
Bristol? Go on you know you want too!
This would be amazing for us folks living on the flatlands
New date added in Central London (Waterloo) on the 7th July. Buy your tickets here: http://www.overhangclimbing.com/products/inappropriate-climbing-andy-kirkpatrick
Saw Andy last night in Epsom - was a great laugh. If you've read his books you'll know some of the stories already, but it's still a good night out.
Thank God! I missed Andy at Epsom and I was wondering why you did not have a London venue! Cheers! See you there...got my ticket!
its because your in yorkshire
