September Gathering: Journeys with a Purpose


30 September, 6.30pm. Royal Geographical Society, London. All welcome!

If you are planning an expedition, independent travel, or adventures large and small, then this evening event in London should be really helpful and inspiring for you.

It’s a pretty simple format: a big room, with beer, and a chance to meet people who can answer your questions. It’s a way to bring together individuals with a range of experiences to swap expertise and share future plans.

We ran one last year and it was brilliant to listen to the buzz of so many different people helping each other, offering advice and contacts, and generally encouraging each other to get out the door and make their adventures happen.

Perhaps you are thinking of cycling the globe and are looking for advice on route planning. Maybe you don’t quite yet have the nerve to go on your first microadventure out of London.

Whether you are planning your first venture or are a seasoned traveller keen to share your knowledge, everyone is welcome.

It’s a great opportunity to get together with others who are planning or who have taken part in amazing journeys. I will be there and running the event, but it’s not The Alastair Humphreys Show – I’m just organising it along with the RGS. There’ll be people way more interesting and knowledgable than me anyway!

Here are some of the other people who will be there and ready to help you:

  • Polar Explorer Martin Hartley

  • Explorers Connect founder, ocean rower, and TV whizz Belinda Kirk

  • Long distance cyclist Anna Hughes

  • Ocean rowers Chris Martin, Debbie Beadle, Roz Savage and (maybe) Olly Hicks

  • Round the world cyclist, film maker and long distance walker Leon McCarron

  • London Microadventurer extraordinaire Anna McNuff

  • Kayaker and Adventurer Richard Harpham

Come along if you can:

Tuesday 30 September 2014, 6.30 -8.30 pm, Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. Closest Tube = South Kensington.

It costs £10 per person to cover the use of the RGS for the night (don’t worry – I’m not getting paid / cashing in!). If you don’t feel that you get your money’s worth I’ll refund you. Plus you get a free drink.

edit: it’s too late now to book in advance so please just turn up and pay on the door. Thank you.

Come along if you can!
