Errrrr, Wilderness Lectures:

Caves of North East Greenland

After years of planning, Gina led a pioneering climate-change research expedition during the summer of 2015 to some of the remotest caves on the planet, located within the Arctic Circle of Northeast Greenland.

When was the last time you visited the cinema? And it's £9.50, supporting a worthy organisation with wider aims than you might at first glance realise.

The last time I went to an UBSS talk it was free.

It's not a University of Bristol Spel. Soc. talk.

UBSS talks may well be free but this isn't a UBSS talk, its a Wilderness lecture that just so happens to be held at Bristol University. Wilderness lectures have been running since 1987 and as far as I know you have always had to pay.

Gina's N. E. Greenland lecture will be an excellent event that shouldn't be missed. Robbie Shone's photographs of the expedition are a must see for anyone interested in the area. Whilst the expedition certainly didn't find the longest or deepest caves in the world, the 20+ caves the expedition did find are the most northerly explored caves in the world.

I usually go to the cimema on a Wednesday when it is half price, usually £4.00 a head.
