WEDNESDAY 16th AUGUST 2017 – WILTON’S MUSIC HALL, LONDON

‘THE EPIC OF EVEREST’ (1924)

ticket link

A REAL ADVENTURE captured on film!

  The Epic of Everest is the official record of the fateful 1924 expedition of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine as they attempted to reach the summit. Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a specially adapted camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance.

    This is the very earliest footage of the Himalayas and beautifully captures its untouched landscape in colour (tinted) film, while displaying the bravery of this group of British mountaineers and their Nepalese team.

  With live accompaniment from The Lucky Dog Picturehouse pianist Peter Coldham

£10 full price, £8 concessions
