Last Friday a capacity audience welcomed Bryan Lintott from the Scott Polar Research Institute for a fascinating lunchtime talk on the Polar Expedition of 1912. Bryan skilfully illustrated the vastness of the Antarctic and also the ambition and drive of Captain Scott and his team to conquer it. What also became apparent was that they so close to survival, but for a quirk of fate.
An astonishing story of endurance.
Thank you to all who came and don’t forget our next Lunchtime Talk is on Friday 12 October. Professor Anthony Slinn presents ‘Masterpieces of the 20th Century’. Book now, places are limited! Is there a better way to spend a lunchtime?
