Jason Lewis, Explorer – Tickets available now

Date: February 4, 2020
Time: 7:00 pm

The Gryphon School in conjunction with Sherborne Literary Society, is delighted to be welcoming explorer Jason Lewis to speak on February 4th.

Jason Lewis is an English award-winning author, explorer and sustainability campaigner credited with being the first person to circumnavigate the globe by human power. He is also the first person to cross North America on in-line skates (1996), and the first to cross the Pacific Ocean by pedal power (2000). Together with Stevie Smith, Lewis completed the first crossing of the Atlantic Ocean from mainland Europe to North America by human power (1995). Jason joins us to talk about his adventures, his life and his Expedition Trilogy.

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH “Lewis is an engaging and polished public speaker with an excellent ear for a story. His achievements are undoubtedly remarkable but his message is not solely one of adventure. He is a committed environmentalist who speaks lucidly about “the impact of humans on Earth”. Having spent months alone at sea, entirely self-sufficient on his boat, he argues that our planet could be compared to a lone vessel in the vast ocean of the universe. Mankind’s challenge, he stated, is to survive within finite means, for the alternative is disastrous.” —Rupert Hawksley

This event will take place at the Quarr Hall at the Gryphon School, Bristol Road,  Sherborne DT9 4EQ starting at 7 pm (doors open at 6.30pm)

Tickets £5/£6 Sherborne TIC, Winstone’s Bookshop and online
