A fascinating evening with Sir Chris Bonnington

A fascinating evening with Sir Chris Bonnington

Mountaineering legend, Chris Bonnington, appeared in front of a packed audience in Bristol last night as one of this year’s star Wilderness Lecture speakers.

This annual series of lectures, presented by a diverse group of adventurers, is organised by our MD, Steve Berry and Dick Willis.

The enthralling evening showcased a new film about Sir Chris called ‘Bonnington: Mountaineer’ which looks back over the incredible life and career of the mountaineering legend and his many immense achievements climbing the highest and hardest mountains in the world. Now 85, Sir Chris reflects on his triumphs as well as tragedies, going full circle from his earliest climbs as a teenager to his ascent of the Old Many of Hoy aged 80.

After the film, Sir Chris took questions from the audience before signing copies of his latest book. The evening was considered a great success by the sold out crowd. Sir Chris is pictured here with Steve Berry.

The remaining lectures this year are presented by Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Simon Yates and John Pilkington. Visit Wilderness Lectures for further details and tickets.
