Various folk keep asking me when I shall be giving a talk near them. For now I am mainly focussing on writing my book ‘Dare To Do’ (due out in November) but I do have a few planned public talks in coming months.
Hopefully these events might fit that description for some of you. They promise to be energetic, interesting nights or weekends out, stacked full of action and inspiration and more people than just me sharing journey tales.
27-30 May 2016
Wade Hall, Clitheroe, Lancashire
BUY TICKETS £85 for the whole weekend – bargain!
‘…A weekend of talks, camping, planning and all things bicycle touring for anyone planning, thinking about or dreaming of a bike trip. There will be talks, workshops, drop-in sessions, practical advice and story telling…’
Lucy and I are both looking forwards to joining on Sunday and Monday. We shall be involved in a couple of sessions (Details & timings tba)
We are very excited as we have never been before – it promises to be a lot of fun.

Buxton Adventure Festival
Wednesday 15th June 2016, 7.30pm
Buxton Opera House, (Paviliian Arts Centre)
COST: £17.50 / £12.50 CONCESSIONS. BUY TICKETS
This is going to be a fun and funny night, I am sure, because I am sharing the stage with my very own sister-in-seasalt Justine Curgenven. Justine kayaked all the kayaking legs of my L2L journey with me so I know we will have a laugh up there. Justine will pave the way as support speaker and I shall be left to tell my side of the story as the main speaker.
Adventure Travel Film Festival
Mill Hill School, London
12 – 14th August 2016
BUY TICKETS £89 weekend pass, extras for workshops
The ATFF’s manifesto leads me to believe hat this is to be an action and inspiration-packed weekend:
1.To showcase the best independent adventure travel films ever made
2.To guarantee a platform for future adventure film-makers
3.To bring together the adventure travel community
4.We know that making a good film isn’t difficult — we will show you how
5.To have loads of fun while doing all the above.
I shall be speaking at some point during the festival (timings tba)
