'Enchanted Isle and Freedom Trails' with Monty Halls at Bristol Grammar School on Wednesday 20th June 2018

Posted on: 19 Jun 2018

Globe-trotting adventurer Monty Halls will regale exciting stories from his latest adventures when he heads to Bristol Grammar School on Wednesday 20th June 2018.  


Entitled 'Enchanted Isle and Freedom Trails', Halls will recount many a thrilling tale that took him (and will take you) from the wilds of Europe to the stunning Galapagos Islands in a talk that will unleash the incredible people and locations he explored during the making of his programmes for Channel 4.


The talk will be illustrated by plenty of enthralling images and exclusive footage, and you'll be able to pick up a copy of Monty's new book - Escaping Hitler: Stories of Courage and Endurance on the Freedom Trails - and get it signed by the man himself after the event.  


Halls has already taken his thrilling presentation to the Royal Geographical Society and garnered rave reviews, including a particularly enthusiastic appraisal by none other than Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who said it's "A brilliant presentation that celebrates the importance of adventure and travel in the modern world."


Broadcast in 2017, WWII's Great Escapes: The Freedom Trails is now available to watch online on All4, while My Family and the Galapagos will get its premiere on Channel 4 later in the year.
