Traveller's Tales: Bonita Norris
Mon 8 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Come and meet inspirational adventurer Bonita Norris in conversation with Condé Nast Traveller contributing editor Michelle Jana Chan at Annabel's, the famed private members' club that has welcomed everyone from Princess Diana to Frank Sinatra and Kate Moss. Norris's ascent to the top has been rapid. In 2008, her life changed after a Royal Geographical Society lecture by Everest mountaineers Kenton Cool and Dr Rob Casserley. Despite having no previous experience, Norris left thinking 'I'm going to climb Everest'. Two years later, she did. The champ has also trekked to the North Pole and scaled technically more difficult and fourth highest peak Mount Lhotse. Last year, she attempted to become the first British woman to tackle K2 and live to tell the tale - although it was a close shave, when life-threatening altitude sickness meant she had to be rescued by helicopter. Norris is now working on a book, Savage Mountain, about her journey from novice to the top of the world. She joins a roll-call of fascinating explorers, including Levison Wood and Colonel John Blashford-Snell, who have taken park in our Traveller's Tales Series, sharing behind-the-scenes stories in an intimate setting.
Tickets are £35 and include a Plymouth Gin cocktail and canapés. To book a table for supper at Annabel's after the talk, email email@example.com.
