Michael Palin at BRNC Dartmouth - 27th September 2018
Tickets Available For A Night With Michael Palin At BRNC
The Monty Python stalwart and much loved television globetrotter Michael Palin will visit BRNC in September to talk about his latest book Erebus: the Story of a Ship.
In this major new work, Michael brings to life the world and voyages of HMS Erebus, from its construction in the naval dockyards of Pembroke, to the part it played in Ross’s Antarctic expedition of 1839–43, to its abandonment during Franklin’s ill-fated Arctic expedition, and to its final rediscovery on the seabed in Queen Maud Gulf in 2014. To help tell the story, Michael has travelled to various locations across the world – Tasmania, the Falklands, the Canadian Arctic – in search of local information, and to experience at first hand the terrain and the conditions that would have confronted Erebus and her crew.
Illustrated with maps, paintings and engravings, the book is a wonderfully evocative and epic account of a ship whose whereabouts had been a mystery for over a century and a half.
Michael will be at BRNC on Thursday 27 September. His talk, hosted by the Dartmouth Bookseller, is scheduled to start at 19.00hrs.
Tickets cost £20 and include a copy of the book. They are available from the Dartmouth Bookseller on 01803 833383, or from the shop in Foss Street, Dartmouth. Michael will be able to spend time after his talk for signings and photos etc.
