Fjӓllrӓven and Ellis Brigham present…

An evening with Alan Hinkes OBE – the first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s highest mountains.

This autumn, Ellis Brigham and Fjӓllrӓven will join forces to host a series of evening lectures from renowned mountaineer and Fjӓllrӓven brand ambassador, Alan Hinkes OBE. With talks set to take place in cities all around the UK including London, Manchester and Glasgow, the lecture series gives outdoor and climbing enthusiasts the opportunity to come along and meet a true climbing legend in person.

An outdoor icon, Alan is the first and only Briton to climb all 14 of the world’s 8000m mountains – a feat achieved by fewer people than have stood on the moon! Boasting an extraordinary mountaineering track record, Alan’s frank and humorous accounts make any of his talks a must-see for keen outdoor-enthusiasts. The talks in this series will cover many of his best-known expeditions including his numerous trips climbing in the Himalaya (as portrayed in his recent book ‘8000 Metres: Climbing the World’s Highest Mountains’).

As well as personal accounts about his career climbing in the Himalaya, what drove him to climb all 14 ‘8000ers’ and the challenges he faced, Alan will also touch upon his other passions. These include the UK’s hills and mountains, real ale and photography. As well as being one of the UK’s leading mountaineers, Alan is a renowned cameraman, photographer, author, Mountain Guide and environmentalist. A fountain of outdoor knowledge, the talks will be a don’t-miss event for any lover of travel, walking and mountaineering.

Closely linked with a number of charitable organisations, Alan is a patron of Water Aid, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Diabetes UK, British Red Cross, YHA and Mountain Rescue.
