  2. Steven Venables Four Men on a Mountain Two Americans, one Canadian and one Briton – alone on the biggest wall of the world’s highest mountain. No high altitude porters, no ladders, no oxygen, no satellite phone, no radios. And no hope of outside help if anything went wrong. But they succeeded on a spectacularly difficult new route up the East Face, with Stephen Venables becoming the first Briton to reach the summit without supplementary oxygen. He also, unintentionally, set a new record for surviving a night alone in the open at extreme altitude. In this spellbinding and beautifully illustrated talk he recounts one of the most remarkable ascents of Everest, along with other journeys he has made around the world’s highest peak. ‘Probably the most adventurous ascent in Everest’s climbing history.’ Reinhold Messner Stephen Venables was the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen, by a new route up the East Face. He has made many other first ascents in the Himalaya, the Andes and Antarctica. He is the author of twelve books and has appeared in many mountain documentaries, including the BBC’s 'Race for Everest'.

  13. Handbagged When Maggie met the Queen. Tea at four. Handbags at dawn. Two icons, one destined to rule, the other to lead. But when the gloves came off, who had the upper hand? Moira Buffini’s sensational comedy looks behind the closed doors of the palace to speculate what really happened when two of the most powerful women in the world clashed. This funny, insightful and brilliantly sharp satire was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2015 and went on to be a West End smash hit.
  14. Tree Identification in the Lake District A fascinating two day course suitable for all levels of ability, with leading UK tree scientist and tutor, Matt Parrott offering tips and techniques for recognising many types of broadleaved trees and conifers around the Lake District, The UK is home to over 30 native trees and shrubs, and a host of imported exotics - many of which can be found in Cumbria. Over the course of two days we'll make use of woodland and tree collections to introduce the skills needed to identify the most commonly encountered species, and perhaps a few of the more unusual ones. We'll look at both broadleaves and conifers- dedicating one day to each- and introducing you to key features such as leaf types, flowers, cones and bark which can all be used to determine the species. We'll start each day with a classroom session, getting to grips with the terminology used in guide books and keys via a range of specimens, then head outdoors to put our new skills into practice. Cost £95 per person for the 2-day course. Booking is required. Call 01539 816300 or to reserve a place.

  20. Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has become a global sensation and nothing short of a UK national treasure. ‘Heresy II Heritage’, their new tour, charts the Uke’s rise from curiosity to virtuosity, from village hall to the Royal Albert Hall. The Ukes of GB have performed for the British Royal Family, the BBC Proms, Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall, but heretics they remain, poking fun at the cultural elite, defying you to believe their own hype, bemused by all the hot air. On an ongoing “hand-luggage only” world tour, the Ukes provide pure entertainment, dead-pan British humour and irresistible foot-tapping music. They are masters of the unexpected, whether re-imagining folk songs, twisting classical music favourites, uncovering quirky versions of rock covers, or playing the performers’ own all-original compositions. “Iconoclastic. Unabashed genre crashing antics. Nothing is spoof proof.” Sunday Times
