An Evening with Sir Chris Bonington is coming to the Alban Arena in St Albans


BRITAIN’S best known mountaineer will be making an expedition to a St Albans theatre this week for a talk.

An Evening With Sir Chris Bonington will be on stage at the Alban Arena on Thursday, October 10.

He started climbing at the age of 16 and has been on 19 Himalayan expeditions since, including four to Everest, and is renowned for having made many first ascents in the Alps and all the greater ranges of the world.

Chris was the first mountaineer on the lecture circuit, but it has been 20 years since he last toured regularly.

His latest tour will present a new “life and times” talk, covering his 60 years spent in the mountains.

With original images and raw footage, this is a rare opportunity to hear about some of the greatest expeditions of the 20th century.

Tickets cost £18, with concessions £2 off.
