Have your say

Dubbed the world’s greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes is comin g to Harrogate.

His new ‘audience with…’ style theatre show, Living Dangerously, is coming to the Royal Hall on Monday, June 16.

Described by the Guinness Book of Records as “the world’s greatest living explorer”, Sir Ranulph’s exploits, escapades and expeditions have taken him in almost every direction in almost every corner of the globe.

The new tour tells the inspirational story of how Sir Ranulph conquered several of the most challenging, record-breaking, expeditions around the planet.

His early adventures included the first hovercraft expedition up the Nile (1969), the 52,000 mile odyssey through both poles in the first polar circumnavigation of the Earth (1979-82), the first unsupported crossing of Antarctica (1993) and the first crossing of the Antarctic Continent by foot.

In more recent years, Sir Ranulph climbed the dreaded North Face of the Eiger, raising £1.8m for Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Delivering Choice Programme, after the sad loss of his first wife.
