Stephen Venables talk: Sevenoaks, October 30th

For those of you living in the south east, Stephen Venables will be giving a talk/slideshow at the Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks, Kent, on 30th October at 8pm.

The lecture is hosted by Tunbridge Wells Mountaineering Club and entitled "Everest and Beyond" - but while there will be a short element involving the "E" word, the bulk of the talk will concentrate on his rescue from 20,000 ft on Panch Chuli with 2 broken legs and his crossing of South Georgia last year with Reinhold Messner and Conrad Anker.

Tickets are £4 for BMC or BMC affiliated members and £6 for others. A limited number of youth tickets are available (subsidised by Nikwax and Paramo) for under-18s ordering through schools and/or youth groups.

Tickets are available through the Stag box office on 01732 450 175 (youth groups should email Rob Naylor at

Any profits will be donated to the Andy Fanshawe Memorial Trust, which aims to help kids get mountaineering experience.
