Mountaineering Night - Join highly experienced Arctic explorer Bob Shepton for the film of his breathtaking sailing and big-wall climbing expedition among Greenland's fjords. This amazing adventure culminated in an ascent of an 850-metre sea wall, from the sea. Plus a screening of 'The Long Hope' by Paul Diffley featuring Dave MacLeod and his 1000ft ascent of St John's Head on the Island of Hoy in one day!

This quirky show involves unseen video, award-winning film, writings, drawings and Dawes's notorious approach to communicating using metaphor and humour. An entertaining evening exploring the links between climbing and art, the universe and everything!
