Night of Adventure

5 Years of Night of Adventure

Night of Adventure

Hear from first-class explorers, daredevils and pioneers as they share their eclectic experiences of adventure at this sell-out event.

The challenge is that speakers are limited to 20 slides to accompany their tales. Shown on a huge screen, each slide rolls forward automatically after just 20 seconds.

With this unusual and challenging presentation format, once the talks begin there is no stopping or going back, the audience must be ready to be swept from adventure to adventure!

Tuesday 24 March 2015

UCL Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL (off Russell Square)

Doors open at 6.30pm with the first talk at 7pm. There will be a short interval and a cash bar is available. We expect to finish at approximately 10pm.
