Traveller's Tales: Colonel John Blashford-Snell
Mon 24 October 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Come and meet Colonel John Blashford-Snell in conversation with adventurers Charley Boorman and Neil Laughton. The Colonel is one of the world’s most seasoned explorers, with a travel log that is second to none. He’s discovered forgotten settlements in the jungles of South America, been to the sites of ancient harbours off Libya, crossed the perilous Darién Gap, led the first team to descend the fearsome rapids of Ethiopia’s Blue Nile, and transported a baby grand piano to a remote Amazonian tribe. After attending The Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, Blashford-Snell served in the army for 37 years and founded the Scientific Exploration Society as well as Operation Raleigh. Supported by Clinique La Prairie, Blashford-Snell will travel to the Amazonas region next year on a humanitarian aid mission to deliver a much-needed ambulance boat to a remote Colombian village.
