Thursday 27th September 2018 - Caspar John Hall, BRNC 1900

We are delighted to invite BA members and their guests to an evening with Michael Palin as he presents his latest book, HMS Erebus.

In this major new work, Michael Palin, former Monty Python stalwart and television globe-trotter, brings to life the world and voyages of HMS Erebus. From the ship's construction in the naval dockyards of Pembroke, the part it played in Ross's Antartic expedition of 1839-43, its abandonment during Franklin's ill-fated Arctic expedition, to its final rediscovery in 2014 on the seabed of Queen Maud Gulf.

To help tell the story, Michael has travelled to various locations across the world including Tasmania, the Falklands and the Canadian Arctic - all in search of local information and to experience first-hand the terrain and conditions that would have confronted Erebus and her crew.

Tickets cost £20 each and includes a copy of the book. These can be reserved through the BA office either by email or 01803 677565. You are welcome to bring cars into the College and dine in the wardroom by prior arrangement.
