Exploration pioneer Sir Ranulph Fiennes to visit Swindon

The explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, described by the Guiness Book of Records as the ‘world’s greatest living explorer’, will be visiting Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre.

Sir Ranulph will be bringing his show ‘Living Dangerously’ to the stage of Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre on Monday, 9 May. 

The evening is said to offer a personal journey through the explorer’s life, from his early days to the present day, with unparalleled stories to divulge. 

Aside from his many record-breaking achievements, he was the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antartic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis. 

A spokesperson for the show said: “Both strikingly poignant, Living Dangerously spans Sir Ranulph’s childhood and school misdemeanours, his army life and early expeditions, right through the Transglobe Expedition to his current Global Reach Challenge - his goal to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.”

The evening with the explorer will start at 7.30pm and ticket prices start at £32.50.
