Berghaus has announced details of a tour of live shows for the autumn. The Berghaus Adventure Series will run from late October until early December and will see Mick Fowler and Leo Houlding entertain audiences at venues across England and Scotland.
The tour will kick off at the Tobacco Factory Theatre in Bristol, where Leo will talk about his recent adventures, including last year’s epic Asgard Project and his more recent escapades in Yosemite. In recent years Leo’s live appearances have proved to be very popular – he combines irreverence and entertainment with stunning photography and footage, and an insight into his ceaseless adventures around the world.
Mick’s first show will be at the Dancehouse Theatre in Manchester. He will have just returned from his latest expedition, which is taking him to the north side of the Xuelian massif in the Chinese Tien Shan range. Tien Shan has been off limits for many years but Mick managed to secure permits from the Chinese authorities for a four week visit during August and September. His is only the third mountaineering expedition ever to visit the area. Mick specialises in the exploration of remote, extremely challenging climbing areas and will talk about a long and varied career that has seen him labelled “the mountaineers’ mountaineer” by the Observer newspaper.
Leo Houlding comments: “I am really looking forward to being part of the first Berghaus Adventure Series. It is a real privilege to have the opportunity to share stories about my climbing career so far, and hopefully enthuse people about the outdoors and adventure. Over the years, I have been inspired by the words and images of many other climbers and I hope that I can both entertain and encourage others to explore and enjoy the world around them.”
The Berghaus Adventure Series kicks off on October 24th and runs through to December 2nd with a joint Leo and Mick lecture at the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) in London on November 27th. For further information and tickets, visit www.planetfear.com.
