This year, in addition to the annual Transglobe Trust Lecture Evening, we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the start of the only polar circumnavigation of the globe, in history. Join Ran and his colleagues including Oliver Shepard and Anton Bowring under the supervision of the evening’s host, Joanna Lumley, as they tell stories (accompanied by photographs and film) about the expedition and each other – many of which will be revelations never before heard in public. It promises to be an eye-opener!
The talk will be accompanied by an exhibition of photographs by the expedition’s photographer, Bryn Campbell, paintings and sketches of the Arctic stage by Maryclare Foa and a number of original artefacts which will be on display at the Royal Geographical Society. Full details and tickets can be booked here
