Chris Bonington needs little introduction. He is Britain's best known mountaineer and one of the most successful expedition leaders in history. He started climbing at the age of 16 and has been on 19 Himalayan expeditions, including 4 to Everest. He is renowned for having made many first ascents in the Alps and all the greater ranges of the world.

This Autumn Chris will be appearing at just six venues presenting a brand new “life and times” talk, covering his sixty years spent in the mountains. With original images and raw footage, this is a rare opportunity to hear about some of the greatest expeditions of the twentieth century.

In reply to Up High: unfortunately it's not a tour as we could only do 6 dates this year, and had to go with the 6 venues who were up for it. But we may do it again next year, in which case we would look to do the SE, SW, NE etc. Sorry to disappoint this time around.

In reply to Speakers from the Edge: I went to Harrogate on Tuesday this week with my 12 yr old son. Even though I had read most of what Chris has written, I really enjoyed the evening. Comes across as a very nice bloke - very humble - and whilst not a stand up comedian, surprisingly entertaining. Definitely recommend.
