    • Join us for our end of season keynote speech & presentation night, with the famed British explorer, Conrad Dickinson.
      Conrad is a proud born and bred Northumbrian, who, apart from a spell as an Army Officer (specializing in Arctic Warfare) has spent the majority of his working career in the North East; successfully building his family business. However, he is probably better known for having put the North East and Britain on the map with his Polar Expeditions.
      He is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and he has a passion for wildlife and photography. He is also an ambassador and patron for the Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
      This event is FREE to enter, with a request for donations on the night to the Northumberland Wildlife Trust.
      Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Conrad speak in his home town!”
