Steve Backshall Voyages to Undiscovered Places
Royal Hall -
Saturday 19th October
Adventurer, presenter, explorer, wildlife enthusiast and all-round daredevil, Steve Backshall, heads to Harrogate for a special talk at the Royal Hall.
Steve Backshall has been leading expeditions to unknown parts of the world for nearly twenty years. But for the last year, Steve has embarked on his greatest project yet - ten expeditions into dark corners of our planet that have never been seen before.
Inspired by Steve’s current BBC series, ‘Expedition’, his talk encompasses astonishing tales from a year of adventure; taking light into forgotten caves, making first ascents of Arctic peaks, and first descents of Himalayan rivers - he talks of narrow escapes and scrapes plus jaw dropping tales of close calls with near certain death as well as lessons learned from his extraordinary year.
