Simon tells of his mountain life

As part of Derby Book Festival, Simon Yates will be presenting his show My Mountain Life at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Thursday, June 4.

After the publication of Touching the Void, Simon Yates and Joe Simpson became household names for the story of their epic survival on a remote Peru mountain.

Not to be put off, Simon is still mountaineering and has plenty of stories to tell, with wit, dry humour, images and videos. Call 01332 255800 for tickets.
