Mallory and Irvine’s attempt on the summit of Everest in 1924 is probably one of the most compelling stories in mountaineering history.  Last seen on the upper slopes and “going strongly for the top”, the mystery surrounding the pair has never been resolved.  Did they make it to the summit, only to fall during the descent? Or had they turned back earlier, perhaps defeated by the Second Step? The story behind Mallory’s journey to Everest is widely told, yet the remarkable life of Sandy Irvine has often stayed in the shadows.   Author and historian Julie Summers, the great-niece of Sandy Irvine, is well- known for her ability to bring stories from the past to life.  Her best-selling book Jambusters formed the basis for the hugely popular ITV drama Home Fires.  With unique access to the Irvine family archives Julie explores the life of Sandy Irvine and how, at the age of only 22, he came to accompany Mallory as they set out for the summit of Everest. Julie’s lecture starts at 7.30PM with venue doors opening at 7PM.  You can expect the talk to last for a little over one hour and there'll be the chance for some audience questions at the end too. Tickets cost £12.50 and are available to purchase via the link below.  Please ensure you enter a valid email address during the checkout process as your entry tickets will be emailed to you.  If you would prefer to receive physical tickets in the post please contact us after you've placed your order and we'll happily send them out to you at no additional charge.
