A mountaineer who has scaled Mount Everest a record breaking ten times will appear at a Lancashire theatre.

Kenton Cool is the first European to reach the summit of Everest twice in one week, and the first person to tweet from the top of the world. In May last year, he fulfilled a 90-year-old Olympic pledge, by taking a gold medal awarded to the 1922 British Everest Expedition to the summit of Everest, just weeks before the opening of the London 2012 Games.

In the 60th anniversary year of Edmund Hillary’s historic Everest climb, Kenton will be talking about his own experiences on the world’s highest mountain at The Dukes, Lancaster, on Wednesday, February 27.

His 20-year career as one of the world’s leading high altitude guides, including his 2007 expedition to lead Sir Ranulph Fiennes to reach the infamous North Face of the Eiger, gives Kenton a unique opportunity to illustrate his evening with images from the top of the world.

Tickets are priced at £13 and £11.
