30 Oct Sir Chris Bonington brings ‘Life & Times’ tour to Chelmsford’s Civic Theatre
Sir Chris Bonington is set to bring his ‘Life & Times’ tour to Chelmsford’s Civic Theatre!
Having spent a lifetime climbing to the top of the world, Sir Chris Bonington is Britain’s best known mountaineer, and one of the most successful expedition leaders in history, who is returning to UK theatres with his ‘audience with…’ style lecture show, Life & Times, to theatres across the UK, presented by Speakers from the Edge, in association with Berghaus
Sir Chris began climbing at the age of 16 and has undertaken 19 Himalayan expeditions, including four to Everest. He is renowned for having made many first ascents in the Alps and all the greater mountain ranges of the world; such achievements do not come easily and several expeditions Sir Chris participated in have been fraught with casualties, tragedy and even fatalities
After leaving a potentially fulfilling career with Unilever as a young man, Sir Chris was the first mountaineer to forge a career on the lecture circuit. This autumn, Sir Chris will present his ‘Life & 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, from one of the greatest mountaineers in history.
