Sir Chris Bonington is perhaps the most celebrated climber of his time. He has made first ascents around the globe including as expedition leader of the South Face of Annapurna in 1970 and the South West Face of Everest in 1975, reaching the summit of Everest himself in 1985. Now in his 80s, he is still active and climbing in the mountains.
Join us for the World Premiere of Bonington: Mountaineer, an intimate journey of one man’s dream where stories of friendship, love, risk, and devastating loss run deep.
Following the film, Sir Chris joins us in conversation with writer and climber, Geoff Powter.
The Summit of Excellence Award will also be presented.
