audience with adventure


an evening of adventure inspiration

Written by Ally Photography by Expedition Team Mates & Al Humphreys

An Audience with Adventure returns for a second time to London, where we’ll be inviting some of the most accomplished adventurers to pull up a chair and discuss the very nature of human-powered journeys. With fresh screenings straight out of Kendal Mountain Film Festival 2017, the event promises to bring the peak of outdoor film perfection and a deluge of endless expedition inspiration to London this November.

The evening will be hosted by Microadventure pioneer Al Humphreys, who will be leading the conversation in between films to discuss incredible feats of human endurance with our yet to be announced panel of intrepid individuals. With Kendal’s award-winning films titles still to be selected, the event will be the first to screen a hand-picked selection of the adventure community’s finest cinematography – capturing the physical journeys of their leading protagonists as modern day adventurers. Further details coming soon…

Al Humphreys

Adventurer, author and motivational speaker Al was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year for his pioneering work on the concept of microadventures – encouraging people to get outside, out of their comfort zone and into the great outdoors. He is an animated advocate for self-propelled adventure, with big expedition achievements including cycling around the world, rowing the Atlantic, walking across India and crossing Iceland by foot and by packraft.

We’ll be announcing who will be taking a seat as part of our Audience with Adventure panel over the coming weeks. Embracing the theme of human-powered journeys, the panel will be recounting tales of grit, pain and strength, talking about their upcoming adventures, and answering all those pressing questions about adventures big and small, big budget and free.
