A Journey of Exploration, from Deserts to Jungles: Charlotte Austwick FRGS

Join us for a night of tales, practical exploring tips, chocolate tasting and much more with award winning professional explorer Charlotte Austwick.

Charlotte is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Winner of the Scientific Exploration Rivers Foundation Award 2019, anthropologist, archaeologist, filmmaker and author! Having already worked in the Central American jungles, plains of Africa and on remote Volcanic Islands, Charlotte is now heading to the tropical Rainforests of Amazonia later this year.

The evening will give you a first-hand insight into just what it is like to plan and undertake an expedition in the 21st century, as well as stories of achieving the ‘impossible’.

The talk will be accompanied by videoclips, photos and the chance to get up close to anthropological Mayan made objects.

Come along and be part of the adventure - be part of the journey to the Amazon!

This is a fundraising event for the Amazon expedition.




Saturday 19th February, 7.30pm-9pm


Adult: £7   Concessions: £5

A £1 Poly Fund payment will be added to each ticket sold.

Please wear a face covering (unless you are exempt), thinking social distance, and sanitise your hands on arrival.
