An Evening with the British Explorer

An Evening with the British Explorer


Castle House, Castle Street,


The British adventurer Tim Oakley and his three-man team recently retraced Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen’s 1905 dogsled journey, travelling 1,100 kilometres from Hershel Island, 5km off the coast of the Yukon to Eagle, Alaska. Tim, who has completed many other exciting expeditions, joins us tonight to relate just what inspired him to do it and how his three-man, 22-dog team endured six weeks of extreme terrain and frigid temperatures to successfully recreate the trip Amundsen achieved 111 years ago. (Tim has donated his fee tonight to the Royal Geographical Society, of which he is a Fellow.)
Ticket: £45 including talk, presentation, two-course dinner and coffee
