SUPPORT SPEAKER - dean dunbar
Dean “Deano” Dunbar is a registered blind adrenaline junkie. Since 1998, he has taken on over 80 challenges around the world and set almost 20 world firsts.
Hear how Deano gets his fix and how his limited sight makes things just a little bit more exciting.
FILM - Into the empty quarter (20mins)
The story of a 1000 mile trek Into The Empty Quarter. Inspired by the great British explorer Sir Wilfred Thesiger, Alastair Humphreys and Leon McCarron set off on their own journey to cross the largest sand desert in the world. The trip is hastily planned, low budget and so very different from Thesiger’s, yet the spirit of adventure remains the same.
AUDIOVISUAL - Ian parnell
Ian Parnell is a highly acclaimed mountaineer in his own right, having climbed extensively with Kenton over the years, but with the added skill of being a super photographer. Ian has very kindly put together a short audiovisual presentation of some of his mountain images especially for the evening.
