His new adventures include; the Hindu ceremony of Kumbh Mela set on the Ganges in Allahabad, a once every 12 year gathering of 30 million pilgrims; grizzly bears, mountains and walruses of Alaska; a flying adventure beneath Mt Everest; eagle-hunters of Khazak Mongolia; survival training in Scotland; the volcanic wilderness of Danikil in Northern Ethiopia; emperor penguins of Antarctica; rafting the Colorado River of Grand Canyon; and closer to home, John will show images from his new book Kinder Scout: The People’s Mountain.
The support speaker for the event is Claire Carter, award-winning film maker of Operation Moffatt, artistic director of the Kendal Mountain Festival and adventurer.
