A winter series of public lectures in Bristol the theme of which is world-wide adventure.
Our lecturers are well known explorers, mountaineers, travel writers, TV personalities, adventure sports personalities or anyone who has an epic story to tell and can enthral our audience with a rattling good yarn. The talks are invariably illustrated with slides and/or film.
Tim Pentreath learnt to fly paragliders in South Wales in 1990 after reading about it in a windsurfing magazine. Twenty seven years later Tim is just as passionate about this amazing and eye-opening sport, and feels amazingly privileged to have been born in a time and place that has allowed him to enjoy the sport from its rudimentary beginnings to the high-tech yet still simple sport it is now.
