Sir Ranulph Fiennes will share stories of his ‘Life at the Limits’ at a special event at the Spa Centre in Leamington on July 21.

Having completed the Marathon des Sables – dubbed the ‘toughest footrace on Earth – earlier in May aged 71, the man widely regarded as the world’s greatest living explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes recount the story of his exceptionally full life.

Sir Ranulph’s exploits, escapades and expeditions have taken him in almost every direction around the globe, including the 52,000 mile odyssey through both poles in the first circumpolar navigation of the Earth (1979-82), the first unsupported crossing of Antarctica (1993) and the first crossing of the Antarctic Continent by foot

Sir Ranulph has led over 30 expeditions, climbed to the highest peak on the planet to become the oldest Briton to do so, discovered the lost Arabian city of Ubar, climbed one of the world’s toughest ascents (the dreaded North Face of the Eiger) and conquered the first 7x7x7 Challenge – seven marathons, on seven continents, in seven consecutive days just three months after a massive heart attack, a three-day coma and a double bypass operation, and has raised many millions of pounds for charities in the process

Sir Ranulph is joined on stage by Anton as he leads Sir Ranulph on a personal journey through his life, from his ancestral heritage to the present day.
