Because it's there IQ2 Mountain Festival at the Royal Geographical Society
THE IQ2 DEBATE: Everest has killed the true spirit of adventure
The first event of its kind in London, the Intelligence Squared Because it's there Mountain Festival takes place from 6-9pm on June 15th 2010 at the Royal Geographical Society and will bring together film, seat-gripping tales of derring-do from the world's best (and best-known) climbers and mountaineers and animated discussion about the true spirit of adventure. Come and hear the first British man and woman to climb Everest, the youngest member of Hilary's successful Everest summit in 1953 and the guide who got Sir Ranulph Fiennes up the North Face of the Eiger and to the top of the highest mountain in the world on a summer's evening at the very place that launched a number of the original record breaking expeditions. Whether you're an armchair mountaineer, experienced climber or just an adventurer at heart you'll enjoy this evening out.
Tickets are £25 each and available through www.iq2mountainfestival.com Ticket price includes a complimentary glass of The King's Ginger – the favoured tipple of bon viveurs, high spirited ladies and sporting gentlemen!
