Adventure filmmaker to speak at Lakes College
Adventure filmmaker Leo Dickinson will be speaking at Lakes College West Cumbria next month. His talk will be the third in a series of Mountain Lectures at the college from the world’s most experienced mountaineers.
In a career that has spanned over 40 years, Leo has made over 50 films, climbed many treacherous peaks, flew over Mount Everest in a hot air balloon, completed over 3000 skydives and written three books about his adventures 'Filming the Impossible' , 'Anything is Possible' and 'Ballooning over Everest'.
During the lecture 'Being in the Right Place at the Wrong Time' Leo will recap epic memories from his career. He will touch on experiences which include climbing and falling on the North Faces of legendary 'Eiger' and 'Matterhorn' peaks being charged at by Lions in South Africa, colliding with a peregrine falcon in free-fall, looking down at Mount Everest from a hot air balloon and many more.
The lecture will take place on Thursday 4th July at 7pm. Tickets cost £12.50 per person or £7.50 for students.
