Explorer talks of new challenge

LEGENDARY explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes will be bringing his latest show to Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Thursday, July 5, from 7.30pm.

In Everest, The Eiger And More, we learn of what happened when the world-renowned polar explorer turned his attentions from the great frozen wilderness of the poles to the world’s highest mountains, despite having no climbing experience and suffering from vertigo.

Interviewed onstage by acclaimed high altitude mountaineer and photographer/cameraman Ian Parnell, Sir Ranulph Fiennes will talk about his expeditions to The Eiger and to Everest. Ian will illustrate the evening with footage (some previously unseen) and stills.

Tickets cost £19.25 (£17.25 concessions) and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
