Felicity Aston Presents: Alone In Antarctica
Tuesday 4th June 2013 - Starts 7.30pm
TICKET PRICE: £10
Join Felicity Aston, the first and only woman in the world to ski across Antarctica alone, as she presents her beguiling talk Alone In Antarctica.
At the end of November 2011, Felicity set off from the coast of Antarctica on the Ross Ice Shelf to cross the entire continent on skis by herself. Ahead of her was a tortuous 1744km (1084 mile) journey. The physical challenges of the 59-day journey are astonishing but it is the mental hardships that Felicity describes that are the most memorable. The crushing solitude and emotional turmoil, and a rather strange relationship with the sun!
Her wonderful talk includes original images and footage from the expedition.
