We are delighted to welcome back author, journalist and adventurer, Steph Jeavons who returns to entertain us, this time with her experiences of leading the first-ever all-female riding group from Kathmandu to Mount Everest Base Camp.
Entitled “Girls on Top” Steph admitted, “I was under no illusion that this was going to be a journey filled with both extreme highs and lows”.
Hear how they battled with Mother Nature as the weather created havoc, and overcame altitude sickness and injury, which sadly ended the journey for some. With so much thrown at them along the way, they still made it to Base Camp on schedule. This is a remarkable story of endurance and friendship. Leaving the last word to Steph: “I knew that they would go home, digest all their experiences and come out the other side wanting more … the bar had been set and now the possibilities were endless. I am very proud of those women and very honoured to have ridden with them”.
The evening will begin at 7.30 pm in the Lecture Theatre of the Collections Centre, National Motor Museum, Beaulieu. A bar will be available for the purchase of beers, wines, soft drinks and tea and coffee. The evenings will conclude at around 10.00 pm. Tickets are £10.00 each for non-members; £7.50 for members. For further information and to purchase tickets please contact Theresa Browning on 01590 614792 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The National Motor Museum will be open at this event.
