‘BONINGTON: MOUNTAINEER’ FILM SCREENING WITH SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY

Tackling the sensitive subjects of loss, love and success on a journey with stories of friendship, love and risk, the film looks retrospectively at Chris’ climbing days in the UK through to his ascents of the highest peaks of the Himalayas and shares the remarkable and poignant life of one of the world’s best-known mountaineers.
Rheged are delighted to invite Sir Chris Bonington and filmmaker, Keith Partridge to the stage for an introduction of the film and a Q & A session once the film has finished.

Everest from Gokyo ri - Nepal

In April 2016 Cumbrian artist Derek Eland became the first ever artist in residence at Everest Base Camp, living in a temporary community with 1000 people as they prepared to climb to the summit.

“Being Human at Base Camp” is the first chance to experience Derek’s unique journey which was extraordinary, moving and surreal. Derek Eland shares his thought provoking experience of his 6 week residency and reveals what it was like to be ‘human’ in the harsh environment of Base Camp.
