An Evening with Michael Palin!

Monday 24th September 19:00 at Tyne Theatre and Opera House, 117 Westgate Road, Newcastle , NE1 4AG

We are delighted to announce, in association with Tyne Theatre and Opera House, that we will be welcoming acclaimed actor, comedian and writer Michael Palin to Newcastle, where he will be talking about his latest book Erebus: the Story of a Ship.

In his 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.

 Illustrated with maps, paintings and engravings, this is a wonderfully evocative and epic account, written by a master explorer and storyteller.

Please note this is a ticketed event: booking is essential.
