Riding Out

Guest Talks |

Starts 7.30pm | Tickets £13 | Theatre

‘Riding Out: A night of adventure: Cycling 3,500 miles around pandemic Britain’ is a multimedia presentation of short films, photos, audio clips and anecdotes where Simon Parker talks about cycling 3,427 miles around Britain during the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 and 2021.

Originally from Oxfordshire, Simon Parker is an award-winning travel writer and broadcaster who has reported from well over 100 countries by the age of 34 for the BBC, The Telegraph and Amazon Prime.

He travelled to the furthest corners of Britain, including Shetland, Scilly, the Highlands, Cumbria and the North York Moors to find out how the pandemic had impacted people of all backgrounds. This is a ground level portrait of Britain, with dozens of unique stories. Farmers, fishermen, artists and musicians. Young, old, rich and poor. It is a social commentary, but also discusses grief, stress, depression and anxiety.

The talks coincide with the launch of Parker’s new book in ‘Riding Out’, which he will be selling at the event.

This is a fascinating story that you won’t want to miss!
