UK Theatre tour in June

Walking the Amazon bookIn June I am doing a theatre talk in 12 cities across the UK where I’ll be talking about the expedition as well as signing copies of the book soon to be published.

It will be two 45 minute halves; an honest, open, hopefully humorous and sometimes dark account of an 860-day expedition through the Amazon.

To read a review of the talk in The Lowry, Manchester click here.

  1. Are other venues/dates being booked or this this the complete list? Hate to book Malvern and then discover there is a venue closer to Bristol.

  2. Nothing in London?

  3. This is the complete list now. I’m speaking at the RGS (capacity 1,200) on Saturday so it was felt that I’d done London really as its the fifth time I’ve spoken there since I’ve been back. Cheers. Ed

  4. Saw you in Barnstaple tonight. Many thanks for donating book for our celebrity auction. I hope you read the information that Cathy and I gave you about the Jaden Cornelious Foundation. The website above has information on the Amazon rainforest trek that we are doing next year and also who Jaden is and why he set up his Foundation. If you are interested in being involved in anyway, even if it is just to give advice by email, then please contact us. We are a new charity and are just starting out but have great things in the pipeline. Again, many thanks for your kind donation.

  5. Are you planning on doing another tour? Just finished watching the series on channel five. Great stuff!

  6. Hi Ed, I belatedly watched your program from my hard drive thingy and just loved it. You are a true hero, I nearly cried at the end when you jumped into the sea.
    Of course I have missed all your talks now but wondered if you plan any more lectures any time in the future. If so, I would love to come and listen – thanks – from Rob

  7. Watched the series and read the book, WOW! Truly amazing!

  8. Can’t believe you missed out Weston-super-Mare!! There’s a lovely new pier and donkeys on the beach, a missed opportunity… Or what about Bristol? Book the Tobacco Factory now!
