This winter, why not join the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and broaden your horizons?
Society membership is open to all and benefits include free lectures in London every Monday evening, discounts on public events and a 10% discount on all Stanfords items.
The full programme of events is available online and includes Monday night lectures for members from Levison Wood on why people explore, Ben Saunders on his experiences of crossing Antarctica and Markus Bell on the myths of North Korea. Public events include a travel evening for first-time travellers to Georgia and an evening of inspirational short talks by up and coming speakers about their geographical journeys.
And there’s plenty going on outside the capital. Leon McCarron is on the road for the Society’s Regional Theatres Programme, speaking in Stamford, Darlington and Southampton about his experience walking through the heart of the Middle East from Jerusalem to Mount Sinai. Patrick Barkham is talking in Norwich about the bizarre and touching stories he uncovered on a journey across the British Isles. While Harriet Dedman, producer, photographer and film maker will be heading to north Devon to discuss her upcoming documentary On the ground – filming the refugee crisis.
