Join us at the Emmanuel Centre for a night filled with adventure, in aid of Hope and Homes for Children.
‘Night of Adventure’ is an exciting, sell-out event where an eclectic collection of first-class adventurers, from across the spectrum of explorers, daredevils and pioneers, come together to share their experiences with a live audience.
Each speaker is limited to just 20 slides to accompany their tales, shown on a huge screen. The challenge is that each slide will automatically scroll forward after just 20 seconds. It’s fast. It’s furious, but, ultimately, it’s a chance to be swept away to a world filled with adventure, all without leaving your seat.
Alastair Humphreys – an adventurer, author and recipient of National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year award for his pioneering work on the concept of Microadventures. Alastair will host the evening.

Sandy Hennis – a member of the Ice Maiden expedition, comprising of six British women, who used muscle power alone to ski coast-to-coast across Antarctica.
Clare Dyson – a qualified Mountain Leader who recently completed an adventure in Cumbria with her pony, Pansy.

Laura Bingham – led an all-female team to attempt the first ever descent of South America’s third-largest river, the Essequibo River.
