Benedict stops off to tell of trips

Rob George 23rd Oct, 2018

ONE of the world’s most renowned adventurer-explorers Benedict Allen brings his brand new show to Huntingdon Hall as part of an extended UK tour.

Telling tales from his extraordinary career, Benedict will reminisce with never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe, from deserts to jungles and even ice fields.

Last year Benedict was on a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, filming his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier.

He hit the headlines when he failed to turn up to Port Moresby for a scheduled flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family and eventually the world media to become concerned for his wellbeing.

Travelling with no mobile phone for contact or GPS, Benedict was eventually located and brought back from the tribal warzone by helicopter, whereupon it was discovered that Benedict had been battling malaria and dengue fever.

Benedict will tell the tale of his most recent adventure, recalling the highs and lows of this trip and showing extracts from the expedition.

He will also bring tales from the rest of his extraordinary career as an explorer to the show next Wednesday (October 31).

Tickets are £17.50 and £15.50 for concessions and available from the Box Office on 01905 611427
