Bradninch Place, Gandy Street
Exeter EX4 3LS
- Tickets £8 (students £5) plus booking fee
An evening panel discussion and performance under the theme Is there anything left to Explore in the 21st century?, chaired by Ritula Shah, BBC Radio 4 presenter, The World Tonight.
The Economist heralded the New Age of Discovery with the declaration, “The glory-seeking adventurer of old is giving way to explorers who want to understand the planet rather than dominate it.”
Panel members will demonstrate
that the need to explore has never been more urgent and relevant. With a
breadth and diversity of backgrounds, each speaker will argue how their own
'exploration' is contributing to a greater understanding of our planet and the
way we live.
Panel members will include folk singer and naturalist Sam Lee, Julian Hector (Head of the BBC Natural History Unit), travel writer Faraz Shibli, and Johanna Wadsley (The Open University).
The discussion will be followed by a music performance by Sam Lee.
Tickets are £8 (students £5) plus booking fee, and can be purchased in advance at: https://www.seetickets.com/tour/explore-south-west
