Shackleton at Wymondham Arts Centre – the greatest survival story ever told

Head to Wymondham Arts Centre on Saturday 23 March, 7pm start, for Shackleton the greatest survival story ever told. Geoff Selley recreates the original magic lantern lecture about Shackleton’s 1914-17 Antarctic expedition. Entry to the lecture is £10, with proceeds going to the Antarctic Heritage Trust, The South Georgia Heritage Trust and Save the Albatross and The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation.

Tickets are available from Arthur Lucas t. 01953 602214 or at Wymondham Arts Centre from 22 March, limited availability, book early.

Dr Hussey, a member of Shackleton’s expedition, toured Britain on his return from the Antarctic with a magic lantern show that featured images taken by Frank Hurley, the expedition photographer. Using Dr Hussey’s original notes, Geoff Selley recreates the lecture showing reproductions of Frank Hurley’s slides.

Shackleton tells the story of the ill-fated 1914-17 expedition, including the group’s survival after the loss of their ship, and Shackleton’s epic journey to South Georgia to bring help back to his stranded crew.
