Sir Ranulph Fiennes – ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’ – will be sharing stories from his exploits and adventures and telling untold tales of his most extraordinary explorations at Shanklin Theatre on Monday.
Ranulph has travelled the globe from pole to pole, becoming the first person to cross the Arctic and Antarctica on foot, broken countless world records of endurance, and discovered the Lost City of Ubar in Arabia. Despite a fear of heights, he is still the oldest Briton to reach the summit of Everest.
However, these extraordinary accomplishments have come at a cost: he has lost half his fingers to frostbite, almost died countless times, and suffered a heart attack and double bypass only three months before he completed seven consecutive marathons in seven days on seven continents.
In his Mad, Bad and Dangerous show, Ranulph will talk about his magical and mischievous childhood, school misdemeanours and his time in the military and beyond. He will also reveal his personal heroes and the lessons he learnt from them, accompanied by never-before-seen images and home videos.
The show starts at 7.30pm with tickets at £33. You can book via iow.life/ranulphfiennes.
