TOP explorers and daredevils are gathering under one roof in Edinburgh for one night only to share their experiences of adventure with a live audience.
More than 400 guests will be treated to 11 talks during the Night of Adventure event at Vue Cinema in the Omni Centre on September 2.
Speakers include award-winning wildlife photographer Anna Henly and adventurer Gavin Francis, who spent a year of silence and solitude among emperor penguins.
The event’s host is award-winning writer and journalist Nick Thorpe, whose latest book, Urban Worrier: Adventures in the Lost Art of Letting Go, tells the story of his year-long quest to find balance and fulfilment by sampling everything from naturism to monasticism, Buddhism to ballooning.
Nick said: “The speakers at Night of Adventure may have travelled the world several times over and found themselves in some pretty hairy situations along the way, but their talks could well be their biggest challenge to date.
“Once they begin there is no stopping or turning back – it’s fast, furious and extremely stressful for the speaker.
“The audience must be ready to be swept from adventure to adventure with only their beer and popcorn to steady their nerves.”
