Night of Adventure

The ‘Nights of Adventure’ are an occasional series of lecture nights held to raise funds and awareness for Hope and Homes for Children. After a visit to some of the charity’s projects in Sierra Leone I decided to ask the talented, interesting and generous community of “adventurers” out there to share their stories. The result: a Night of Adventure. An eclectic collection of adventurers, from across the spectrum of explorer, daredevil and vagabond, gather to tell their tales.

So far we have raised £150,000 for charity.

It is a lecture night with a twist: each speaker is limited to just 20 slides, and each slide scrolls forward automatically after just 20 seconds. It is an unusual, challenging presentation format. Once the talk begins there is no stopping or going back: it is fast and furious and extremely stressful for the speaker!

This unusual format keeps things moving at a swift pace. Speakers must tell a concentrated version of their adventure and tell it well. And the audience must be ready to be swept from adventure to adventure. The event aims to celebrate the spirit of adventure in all its guises.

The speakers all generously give their time for free and all proceeds go straight to the work of Hope and Homes for Children.
