'A Crawl Down The Ogre'

talk by Doug Scott CBE

7PM - 9PM

(Doors open 6:30PM)

Licensed bar 

 

In 1977 legendary mountaineers Chris Bonington and Doug Scott made the first ascent of The Ogre (7825m) in Pakistan. With the aid of newly discovered photographs, Doug will be telling a thrilling tale of hard climbing, team work and survival against all odds that has since become part of mountaineering folklore and extended the boundaries of what had been achieved before at that altitude.

Their subsequent descent in the dark immediately became an epic. Doug broke both legs just above the ankles. A storm blew in lasting five days, during which time Chris smashed his ribs and contracted pneumonia. With the selfless help of Mo Anthoine and Clive Rowland, it took them eight days to reach Base Camp. But the adventure did not stop there. It was another 24 years before The Ogre was climbed again.

Each evening will include a sale of Nepalese goods, cards and posters and the talks will be followed by an auction of signed framed mountaineering prints in aid of Community Action Nepal.  Doug will also sign copies of his award-winning autobiography Up And About.

King of the one-hundred-liner’

★★★★Daily Telegraph

Comedy superstar John Bishop is coming here to warm up his brand new show WINGING IT in autumn 2017!

It will have been 3 years since his last tour and WINGING IT is gearing up to be his biggest and best yet.  John is very much looking forward to this new adventure and can’t wait to be back on the road again. 

John has achieved huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows including ‘John Bishop’s Australia’ (BBC1), ‘John Bishop’s Britain’ (BBC1); ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’ (Sky1); ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1); ‘The John Bishop Christmas Show’ (BBC1) and ‘John Bishop’s Gorilla Adventure’ (ITV1).  More recently his new series ‘John Bishop: In Conversation With…’ sees him chatting, one to one with some of the UK’s biggest names.

John has also been a regular on ‘A League of their Own’ (Sky1) as well as a host of The Royal Variety Performance.

‘Home is not only where Bishop’s heart clearly and endearingly is – it’s where his art is, too.’
