by Jacqui Tucker
Described by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennesexploits, escapades and expeditions have taken him in almost every direction around the globe, including the 52,000 mile odyssey through both poles in the first circumpolar navigation of the Earth (1979-82), the first unsupported crossing of Antarctica (1993) and the first crossing of the Antarctic Continent by foot
Having completed the Marathon des Sables, aged 71, in 2015 (dubbed the ‘toughest footrace on Earth) to become the oldest (then) Brit to complete it, whilst raising another £1m for Marie Curie Cancer Care – living legend Sir Ranulph Fiennes is set to embark upon another adventure this summer as he takes to UK theatre stages to recount the hugely impressive and inspiring story of his exceptionally full life in an ‘audience with…’ style theatre show, Mind Over Matter, presented by adventure-based speakers specialists.
Sir Ranulph has led over 30 expeditions, climbed to the highest peak on the planet to become the oldest Briton to do so.
Mind Over Matter offers another opportunity to hear Sir Ranulph recount the personal journey through his life. From light-hearted to strikingly poignant, Mind Over Matter is the inspirational story of Sir Ranulph’s life of conquering several of the most challenging, record-breaking, expeditions and adventures on Planet Earth
