We are delighted to announce that Benedict Allen, one of the world’s most renowned adventurer-explorers, will be coming to Oundle as part of his brand-new tour of the UK.
Benedict Allen will tell the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become concerned for his wellbeing.
Benedict will recall the highs and lows of this awe-inspiring trip, tell exhilarating tales from his life as an explorer and show never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe.
‘Part of history of television’ – Mark Thompson, Former Director General, BBC
‘This is a hugely exciting venture for me. I can’t wait to travel the UK and share my experiences of some of the most testing, but also wonderfully inspiring, corners of the globe’ - Benedict Allen
This is a two hour event including a twenty minute interval. Suitable for all ages.
