Berghaus are pleased to announce an exciting series of live UK events for this winter, The Berghaus Adventure Tour, featuring two of our most high profile athletes, Leo Houlding and Mick Fowler who will entertain audiences at venues across England and Scotland.
The tour will kick off at the Tobacco Factory Theatre in Bristol, where Leo will talk about his recent adventures, including last year’s epic Asgard Project and his more recent escapades in Yosemite. In recent years Leo’s live appearances have proved to be very popular – he combines irreverence and entertainment with stunning photography and footage, and an insight into his ceaseless adventures around the world.
Mick’s first show will be at the Dancehouse Theatre in Manchester. He will have just returned from his latest expedition, which is taking him to the north side of the Xuelian massif in the Chinese Tien Shan range. Tien Shan has been off limits for many years but Mick managed to secure permits from the Chinese authorities for a four week visit during August and September. His is only the third mountaineering expedition ever to visit the area. Mick specialises in the exploration of remote, extremely challenging climbing areas and will talk about a long and varied career that has seen him labelled “the mountaineers’ mountaineer” by the Observer newspaper.
