In 2008 Henry Adams embarked on a mission to follow in Shackleton’s and his great grandfather’s footsteps to reach the 97 mile point short of the South Pole where the party of four had been forced to turn back exactly a hundred years before. Along with some magnificent slides and many interesting anecdotes, Henry describes how he and two other descendants of Shackleton and his men ultimately succeeded in completing the unfinished family business all the way to the South Pole after a 900 mile unsupported trek – a new record at the time.
Through this lecture Henry has raised many thousands of pounds for various charities at major venues. Here, in the splendid Great Hall at Parham House, in return for a stimulating talk after your glass of prosecco, we all hope for your generosity in contributing towards expensive and badly needed repairs to the roof of the beautiful old church at Parham.
