Adventurer Karen Darke will talk about her incredible life in her first UK lecture-tour.

Karen Darke is a truly remarkable woman. Just four years after being paralysed from the chest down in a rock climbing accident, Karen set out on a hand bike to cross the Tien Shan and Karakoram mountains of Central Asia. This was to be the first of many adventures which would see Karen hand cycle the length of the Japanese archipelago and the Indian Himalaya, sea kayak a 1200 mile length of the Canada – Alaska coastline and make a record-breaking 600 kilometre crossing of the Greenland ice cap.

Set-against a backdrop of inspirational images and footage, ‘If you fall’ is a unique opportunity to meet one of the most extraordinary adventurers of our time.

The dates are:
28 Feb Inverness
3 March Oban
11 March Poole
12 March Imperial College, London
16 March Kinlochleven
17 March Drumnadrochit
19 March Black Isle
26 March Derby
23 April Dunkeld
7 May Caernarfon

Further details of the actual venues and times can be found at Karen Darke’s website.
