"Colonel John Blashford-Snell is one of the world’s most renowned and influential explorers. Often cited as an inspiration by the likes of Ranulph Fiennes and Bear Grylls, he has spent decades at the forefront of British expeditions. John’s achievements include the first descent of the Blue Nile in Ethiopia, an arduous crossing of the Darien Gap and the first navigation along the full length of the Congo River.
Heralded by the Telegraph as “the last of the great adventurers” John’s talk is a chance to hear his daring exploits first hand – from deserts and mountains, to wildlife and people."
