Overview

An Evening with Alan Hinkes OBE

An outdoor icon, Alan is the first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s 8000m mountains – a feat achieved by fewer people than have stood on the moon! Boasting an extraordinary mountaineering track record, Alan’s frank and humorous accounts make any of his talks a must-see for keen outdoor-enthusiasts. As well as personal tales about his career climbing in the Himalayas, Alan will also touch upon his other passions including the UK’s hills and mountains, real ale and photography.
