Please note: this event has been rescheduled from Sunday 26 September 2021.

In Autumn 2022, join critically acclaimed author and explorer Levison Wood as he takes to the stage for his third UK tour, The Art of Exploration.

In this entertaining two-hour show, Levison shares his experiences and learnings from a lifetime of travel, from his army career and the front-lines of Afghanistan to his photo-journalism assignments in the Congo and Nepal, as well as world-renowned expeditions through some of the most testing environments on earth, including the Nile, Himalayas and the Arabian peninsula. Levison will reveal the lessons he has learnt on the road and how we can all benefit from applying the philosophy of travel and the Art of Exploration to our normal everyday routines, so we can achieve a positive mindset and get things done.

By sharing his fascinating anecdotes and honest experiences, along with photography from his extensive travels, Levison hopes to inspire the audience to embark on their own journeys - whether through travel or day-to-day life. 

Alex Bescoby, documentary filmmaker, writer and TV presenter will be hosting Levison’s shows. He is the co-founder of Grammar Productions, whose award-winning documentaries have been broadcast on BBC, History Channel, Discovery and Canal+.

His debut book The Last Overland, charting his 13,000 mile journey across 23 countries in a 1955 vintage Land Rover, will be published this September, with the accompanying four-part TV series airing on All4.
