    NOVEMBER 2018


    Thursday 1st         To the End of the Earth – the Story of Scott of the Antartic

    Andrew Lound


    It was seen as the last great adventure, one in which it was assumed that Britain would be first. Captain Scott had set out to lead the first team to reach the South Pole. A whole nation watched and waited. It would take months for any information to reach Britain from those frozen wastes of Antarctica. The drama, the excitement and the sheer courage of those who could meet a challenge against all the odds as the whole story of the expedition is told in a very dramatic lecture. With remarkable images, awesome sound effects and a soundtrack to stir the emotion of the audience, you will feel the chill of the icy wind, feel the excitement and reel at Scott’s disappointment. Story telling at its finest and definitely a talk not to be missed.
