Thursday 24th September - 7.30pm GMT - approx. 9.30pm.

45th Anniversary screening of the documentary + Exclusive Q&A with Sir Chris Bonington, Pertemba Sherpa, Paul 'Tut' Braithwaite, Martin Boysen, Charlie Clarke and Mike Thompson. Compered by Julie Summers.

It's been forty-five years since Dougal Haston and Doug Scott stood as the first Brits on the summit of Everest, and the first ever team by the south-west face. To celebrate this incredible record-breaking achievement, we are pleased to announce a very special screening of Everest the Hard Way, followed by an exclusive Q&A with some of the original members of the team.

Join us all as we watch this truly raw documentary. After the screening, stay tuned to watch Julie Summers lead a conversation with the Everest heroes as they reminisce over the events on the mountain. You will have exclusive access to their memories and camaraderie as they recall this truly incredible adventure.

We are also delighted to inform you that the Lead Sherpa from the 1975 expeditions, Pertemba, will be joining the conversation live from Kathmandu. Pertemba was one of the very few team members who summited during the expeditions, whilst also leading and managing 120 other sherpas and porters, at only 29 years old. 

All of the proceeds from this event will go to Community Action Nepal, a charity founded by Doug Scott himself. The money will go directly to supporting the mountain communities of the Himalaya during this incredibly difficult time.

The film will be screened on YouTube Live. Youi will be emailed an exclusive link to this screening upon payment for your ticket. Please keep this link safe. The film will begin at 7.30 pm GMT and will finish approximately 9.30 pm. 

You will be able to comment during the screening, and we will endeavour to respond to all questions, but if you have a specific question to ask the team on the night, please email your questions ahead of time to jonmaguire@canepal.org.uk. We'll select the best questions and ask them on the night. 

You can pay as much or as little as you like for your ticket, but we recommend a minimum of £5 per person. Buy Tickets from: eventbrite.co.uk/e/everest-the-hard-way-45th-anniversary-screening-and-qa-tickets

Thank you! We look forward to having you with us on the 24th September!
