A captivating illustrated talk by

Charlie Walker

In February 2017, Charlie Walker began a 9,000km triathlon spanning the length of the perceived border between Europe and Asia, from the midwinter snowfields of the Russian arctic to the Bosporus in Istanbul.

During this expedition, Charlie and Callie (his American expedition partner) experienced temperatures as low as -40°C, several arrests, the threat of bears and the challenges of survival in some of the world’s most remote and inhospitable landscapes.

However, much more than that, it was an exploration into what it means to be Asian or European and what divides or unites the peoples on either side of the line demarcating East and West.

Tickets: £10 (£5 students/under 18’s, family £25), available from Evenlode DIY (27 High Street) or Alice Davies 01865 882218 alicedavies23@gmail.com
