An evening with Michael Palin


Thursday 27th September at 7pm

The Britannia Royal Naval College

We are very excited to announce an evening with Michael Palin on Thursday 27th September 2018 at The Britannia Royal Naval College.

In this major new work, Michael Palin – former Monty Python stalwart and much-loved television globe-trotter – brings to life the world and voyages of HMS Erebus, from its construction in the naval dockyards of Pembroke, to the part it played in Ross’s Antarctic expedition of 1839–43, to its abandonment during Franklin’s ill-fated Arctic expedition, and to its final rediscovery on the seabed in Queen Maud Gulf in 2014. To help tell the story, he has travelled to various locations across the world – Tasmania, the Falklands, the Canadian Arctic – in search of local information, and to experience at first hand the terrain and the conditions that would have confronted Erebus and her crew.

£20 each. Ticket includes admission and a signed copy of the book.

For those who come here find that the house by the harbour wall offers a warm welcome, and – despite its situation at the very end of the village – a new beginning…
