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 some of the world’s best adventure films and we’ll be joined on stage by two incredible speakers:
James Glancy, a passionate wildlife conservationist and keen adventure sportsman who has spent his life outdoors in wild and hostile places. James is now taking his passion in to television, filming and presenting. He recently featured on BBC 2's Curious Creatures and as a host on Discovery Channel's show 'SharkWrecked,' during Shark Week 2018.
Plus hear from the adventurer, mountain runner and endurance cyclist Jenny Tough. In 2018 Jenny cycled across Spain and got >14 punctures; cycled across France with the @adventuresynd, got school kids out on their bikes through #matchthemiles; raced the 2500km TransAtlanticWay through Ireland, and the Silk Road Mountain Race; and also ran 600km in 17 days across the Bolivian Andes.
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.
