Wilderness Lecture: Guy Grieve

Event Date: Wed 23 January 2019
Event Time: 07:00 pm

Start January with some adventurous inspiration at Guy Grieve’s Wilderness Lecture.  An adventurer and entrepreneur, Guy’s talk will tell us the detail of his amazing journeys and the philosophy that motivates his incredible travels including the year that he spent living alone in a cabin that he built in the wilderness of the Interior of Alaska in 2004-05.  His talk will focus on the importance of Wilderness to humanity.  Is it possible to live and continue within a capitalist model whilst keeping wild places wild? For more info click here.

Advance tickets are £10 or pay £11 on the door.  To get tickets in advance, you can buy them from Standfords on Corn Street or from their website.  The lecture starts at 7:30 pm so we will meet from 7:00 pm in order that we can sit together.  If buying on the door, check ticket availability beforehand and get there early, as some of these events sell out.  It’s at the Chemistry Theatre, University of Bristol. Hope to see you there!

About Brunel Walking Group

Thanks for visiting us! Brunel Walking Group is for young(ish) people in the Bristol and Bath area who love the countryside and like to get outside on a weekend.

What is Brunel Walking Group?

Brunel is a thriving group with over 400 members and is part of The Ramblers charity. All of our walk leaders and committee members are volunteers, dedicated to sharing our fantastic countryside with others.  Read more on our FAQs page

How do I join the walk?

There is no need to sign up to join a walk, just turn up at the meeting point where we will share lifts to the start of the walk.  You’re very welcome to try out 1 or 2 walks before you join, but we do insist that after that you join the Brunel Walking Group.  It’s OK if you don’t drive – we normally have enough drivers who are able to give lifts, but drivers often appreciate it when a voluntary contribution is made by passengers towards their costs.

How do I know what to bring? And am I fit enough?

We provide a full recommended kit list here.  Please do bring water, a rainproof jacket, walking trousers (or similar) and walking shoes/boots – avoid jeans and trainers.

Walks are graded as either 1 boot, 2 boot or 3 boot.  Read more about choosing the right walk for your fitness level here,
