An Audience with Sir Ranulph Fiennes. The worlds greatest explorer

Friday 29 September doors open 6:00pm

Ladies and Gentleman,

Listening to Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ incredible stories leaves you dumbfounded and in a state of disbelief.

From his self-deprecating tales of academic failure, through his time in the Forces, to discovering lost Middle Eastern cities and of course, his many and varied expeditions, it’s amazing how much one man has crammed into his life.

On September 29th MJK Sports Events once again have the privilege of hosting an event with Sir Ran as the special guest and to say we are thrilled is an understatement.

Following recent sell out shows on behalf of WaterAid at the Ramside Hall Hotel, in Durham, and the Grand Connaught Rooms, in London. Both audiences were captivated by the stories and left open-mouthed at the challenges faced and conquered by Sir Ran, his first wife Ginny and countless colleagues like Dr Mike Stroud, who have faced every challenge with him.

Three things stand out firstly from the big screen video entrance the 50 minute description of his life and the audience question and answer sessions that follow. He is not one to boast, he does not suffer fools gladly and he has a very dry but funny sense of humour.  It is not for the faint hearted either, with a couple of pictures of hands and feet that had been subjected to extreme cold and the ravaged faces exposed to pure Ozone.

Among the many physical problems Sir Ran describes, including heart-attacks and diabetes, one is very evident. Frostbite cost the explorer the fingers on his left hand and such was the pain during his wait to have them operated on in the UK (you have to wait five months on medical grounds) his description of literally taking matters into his own hands with his wife Ginny was as a bleak and matter-of-fact as any story you’ll ever hear.

It is a privilege to be in such an incredible man’s company. He is undoubtedly a Great Briton and the World’s Greatest Living Explorer. Sir Ranulph Fiennes is super human and a super human too.

If you have not seen him live then this event is an absolute must.

When the night has finished Sir Ran will host a book signing where guests can purchase any of his books and have them personally signed and dedicated by the man himself.

Yorkshires Leading ACDC tribute act comes to Bingley Arts Centre with Special Guests * * * The bigger the stage, the bigger the show * * * Highway to Hull are Yorkshires answer to ACDC. They bring you over 90 minutes of the very best of their magnificent back catalogue of songs. Recreating ACDC at their prime, this local band have been performing highly charged concerts throughout Yorkshire for over ten years. Look out for classic songs, such as Highway to Hell, Back in Black, You shook me all night long, Thunderstruck and more. Classic songs from both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras, will ensure that ACDC fans of all ages are catered for. Following on from performing “Sell out” gigs across Yorkshire and headlining multi band outdoor events, Highway to Hull recently played another sell out gig at Guiseley Theatre in December with the original ‘one and only’ T Rex. The Group was originally put together by musicians meeting at Beat It Music in Baildon, just over the hill from Bingley. The band are excited about performing what is essentially their local home gig and still recruits its members from within Yorkshire. Andrew Steele (from Huddersfield) was the most recent member to join the group (as Angus Young). He joins Mick 'The Metal' Walsh (Rhythm), Charley 'Otto' Cunz (Vocals), Malcolm Moorhouse (Bass) who has just returned to the group and founder member Matthew Wildman (Drums) The night may well bring a few extras to the main performance and a good quality support act will also be completing the line up, to make it one heck of an evening to remember.
