Writer and film-maker Matt Dickinson will tell the story of his expedition to Antarctica in one of the smallest vessels ever to have braved the most dangerous seas in the world.

Using video clips and slides, he will give the talk at Giggleswick School’s Richard Whiteley Theatre on Thursday, February 28, at 7.30pm.

He will introduce the audience to stunning wildlife and unclimbed mountain peaks and will refer to the effect of global warming on the southern hemisphere.

As a film-maker, Matt has worked extensively for National Geographic Television, the Discovery Channel and the BBC and is one of the very few director/cameramen ever to have filmed on the summit of Mount Everest.

His writing credits include two novels – High Risk and Black Ice, both published by Random House (UK) – and has recently signed a new three book deal with Oxford University Press for his high adrenaline thriller series Mortal Chaos.

Tickets for the talk are free from the theatre box office 01729 893180 or visit giggleswick.org.uk/rwt.
