Ye Olde Fleece Inn
Dinner and Speaker Evening with Doug Scott and Sir Chris Bonington
Join us for an exclusive and unique evening with legendary mountaineers Doug Scott and Sir Chris Bonington, in the relaxed atmosphere of Kendal’s Ye Olde Fleece Inn.
Recently refurbished to a create a beautiful venue, the 17th-century inn has gained top-level acclaim for its food, and the evening will feature a three-course meal showcasing their new menu, with a pre-dinner glass of fizz.
The after-dinner presentation from Doug will centre around the experiences that he and Chris went through during a golden era of Himalayan exploration, including one of the great mountaineering tales of survival when Doug and Chris crawled to safety off the Ogre in a eight-day epic. Hosted by ‘Mr Frostbite’ himself, Nigel Vardy, there are a limited number of tickets available for this rare opportunity, and proceeds raised will be donated to Community Action Nepal. Make sure you bring a sense of humour and a good appetite!
Our guest liaison manager will be in touch following your booking with regards to seating arrangements and dietary requirements. No dress code.
