Event description

Description

In 1958, a coffee and 'fag' in the University refectory (now Brown's) led to Tony and his friend Mark Howell launching their Transcontinental Expedition (1960-61) and in turn founding the University of Bristol Expedition Society (UBES) as they travelled 30,000 land miles in British built 4 wheel drive vehicles, 16,000 miles by sea, and through 20 countries in just 13 months.

Hear him discuss life in Bristol in the 1960s and the Expedition Society’s early intrepid adventures around the world that kicked off what is Bristols biggest and best outdoors society, which celebrates the 70th anniversary of its founding meeting this year.
