AN EVENING WITH ALAN HINKES OBE 

The first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s highest mountains.

This autumn, join Fjӓllrӓven and Ellis Brigham for a series of adventure-filled talks from renowned mountaineer, Alan Hinkes OBE.

An outdoor icon, Alan is the first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s 8000m mountains – a feat achieved by fewer people than have stood on the moon! Boasting an extraordinary mountaineering track record, Alan’s frank and humorous accounts make any of his talks a must-see for keen outdoor-enthusiasts.
The talks in this series will cover many of his best-known expeditions including his numerous trips climbing in the Himalayas (as portrayed in his recent book ‘8000 Metres: Climbing the World’s Highest Mountains’).

As well as personal accounts about his career climbing in the Himalayas, what drove him to climb all 14 ‘8000ers’ and the challenges he faced, Alan will also touch upon his other passions. These include the UK’s hills and mountains, real ale and photography. Alan is a fountain of outdoor knowledge and these talks will be a don’t-miss event for any lover of walking, mountaineering, climbing or travel.
