As part of the Buxton Adventure Festival, mountaineer Mick Fowler headlines an evening of adventure at the Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton on Wednesday 8 March 2017.
Mick has been a leading climbing adventurer since the 1970s and has become well known as an innovative and inspirational mountaineer.
Dubbed ‘The Climbing Taxman’ by the media, and voted ‘The Mountaineers’ Mountaineer’ by the Observer Magazine, Mick Fowler is the ‘amateur’ climber par excellence, matching the standards of many professional climbers while holding down a full-time job at HM Customs & Revenue.
He has established numerous climbs, including the first ascent of the north face of Sulamar in China and new routes across the Himalaya, such as on Gojung (6310m), the Prow of Shiva (6,142m) and Kishtwar Kailash (6,451m). He has won several awards, including two Piolets d’Or, and authored a number of critically acclaimed books, including Vertical Pleasure and On Thin Ice.
The event will also feature a support speaker, a short film and stunning photography, ensuring a full evening of action-packed entertainment.
Tickets cost £17.50 (£12.50 Concessions)
