Event description
Three of the world’s toughest and most seasoned explorers visit Edinburgh to share inspirational tales to raise funds for The Polar Academy.

About this Event

Taking place at The Assembly Rooms, ‘Into The Freezer’ will be the first time the New York-based Explorers Club has staged an event in Scotland.

Captain Louis Rudd MBE, Mark Wood and Paul Vicary will share stories and footage from their expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctica and help motivate their audience by revealing what can be achieved when you push mind and body to the limit.

This exclusive event will be hosted by Scotland’s greatest living Polar explorer, Craig Mathieson – the founder of The Polar Academy and a member of the world-renowned Explorers Club.

The speakers will be joined by teenagers from Bathgate Academy who participated in The Polar Academy’s latest expedition to Arctic Greenland in April this year and will be part of a documentary being shown on BBC Scotland this October.

The speakers:

Captain Louis Rudd MBE

In December 2018, the British Army Captain became the first Briton in history and only the second person in the world to successfully trek unaided across Antarctica to the South Pole. Capt Rudd finished the solo 921-mile journey in 56 days.

Mark Wood

A former soldier and firefighter, Mark Wood has completed more than 30 major expeditions. This has included summiting Mount Everest on numerous occasions, an unsupported trek to the Geographic South Pole, followed directly by a 200-mile solo and unsupported crossing of the Arctic Ocean to the Geographic North Pole.

Paul Vicary

With over 30 years military experience, Paul has undertaken many challenging expeditions to help raise funds for charity. In 2016, he embarked on arguably one of the last and most difficult arenas in the world today, venturing with two other colleagues unsupported to the Geographic North Pole.

The Polar Academy

Founded in 2013, the charity uses exploration of the wilds of Scotland and Greenland to positively transform young lives affected by mental health issues.
