SUNday 14 APRil
TICKETS: £18 | Under 25s & Students £10
Join us at Broadway in Nottingham on 14th April 2019 for a one-of-a-kind evening celebrating exploration of some of the wildest places on earth.
We’ll be screening the world’s best adventure films and we’ll be joined on stage by two incredible speakers:
Former British Royal Marine and wildlife conservationist James Glancy who last year took part in ‘the most dangerous experiment ever attempted on the Discovery channels - Shark Week’, spending a staggering 43 hours floating in the Atlantic Ocean with deadly whitetip sharks circling. His aim - to prove that sharks are graceful and cautious creatures which deserve protection from fishing.
Plus hear from Jenny Tough – an incredible adventurer who is currently running a self-supported solo run across a mountain range on every continent! So far she's crossed the Tien Shan Mountains in Kyrgyzstan, the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, the Cordillera Oriental in Bolivia and she's currently running in the Southern Alps. Jenny joins us to share honest tales from her incredible solo adventures.
We'll be screening over 60 minutes of highly visual film* on the big screen including:
Every Single Street
(These films are different to the films shown at the film only evening held at Broadway Cinema earlier this year.)
The evening will be presented by Festival Director Steve Scott.
James is a passionate wildlife conservationist and keen adventure sportsman. James has spent his life outdoors in wild and hostile places. As a child, James was taught to dive and swim with sharks by a former US Navy Seal who inspired him to join the British military.
Over a 10 year military career, James was a Officer in the elite British Royal Marines and Special Boat Service. He deployed on multiple tours around the world, including three combat tours of Afghanistan. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Conspicuous Gallantry Cross (CGC) for leadership and bravery on the frontline.
A keen military historian, James read Modern History at the University of Oxford, where he also Captained the Blues Varsity Boxing team.
Since leaving the armed forces, James has returned to his childhood passion for wildlife and shark diving. He is now a Director of a conservation charity, Veterans 4 Wildlife, where he focuses on the preservation of African wildlife and combating the global trade in shark fins. James is also a Founder and Director at the international risk consultancy, AnotherDay and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
Jenny Tough is on a mission to run solo and unsupported across a mountain range on every continent, and will be joining us on the tour this year fresh back from the fourth installment, her >1000km run across the Southern Alps. In 2016 she became the first person to run across the Tien Shan of Kyrgyzstan, and in 2017 the Atlas Mountains, and in 2018 the Bolivian Andes.
She is passionate about all human-powered endurance challenges and encouraging others to push their own limits, and to go find adventures.
