EXPLORER Levison Wood will be visiting Warrington next year in one of Parr Hall’s first new bookings since the coronavirus crisis.

The British Army officer turned author, best known for his extended walking expeditions in Africa, Asia and Central America, will give a talk at the Palmyra Square venue on September 22.

Levison will be taking to the stage for his third UK tour, The Art of Exploration.

The 38-year-old will be sharing everything from tales from his army career and the front-lines of Afghanistan to his photo-journalism assignments in the Congo and Nepal.

He will also talk about the world-renowned expeditions where he made his name by taking on some of the most testing environments on earth, including the Nile, Himalayas and the Arabian peninsula.

A spokesman for Parr Hall said: “Levison will reveal the lessons he has learnt on the road and how we can all benefit from applying the philosophy of travel and The Art of Exploration to our normal everyday routines, so we can achieve a positive mindset and get things done.

“By sharing his fascinating anecdotes and honest experiences, along with photography and footage from his extensive travels, Levison hopes to inspire the audience to embark on their own journeys – whether through travel or day-to-day life.”

Levison Wood will present The Art of Exploration at the Parr Hall on September 22. Tickets are £26.50. Visit parrhall.culturewarrington.org
