Thanks to Mike for this event, and Martin Hartley for the pictures …
World-renowned polar explorer Pen Hadow will be visiting Abingdon on Thursday 6th October to give a public lecture at the Amey Theatre. This is the start of a series of adventure and exploration themed public talks in Abingdon with the simple of aim of giving the local community the chance to hear some remarkable people. There are two events lined up at the Amey Theatre this Autumn; the first is Pen’s talk followed by a second talk from Everest mountaineer Stephen Venables at the end of the November.
All the information on Pen’s talk can be seen on the website www.horizonlectures.co.uk/ or facebook page www.facebook.com/horizonlectures
Mike will be on the marketplace next Saturday afternoon (once the Freedom Parade is complete).
