Behind the scenes for the last couple of weeks not only have I been busy with press interviews about the book launch but also with other events for the future.
I can now reveal that I am honoured and excited to have been invited to be one of the guest speakers at Keswick Mountain Festival in June (8th-11th). This is one of the festival highlights of the outdoor activities calendar, especially in the Lake District. To have been even considered to give a talk in a 400 seat theatre about my ten year Wainwrights in Colour project is a real privilege especially when others on the programme are highly respected champions of the mountaineering world. This will be a wonderful opportunity for me to give the full background story behind the whole project, the trials and tribulations of the challenge and the methods and practicalities of completing this huge undertaking.
Not only will I be giving the talk at 4pm on the Saturday I will be there in the festival exhibition marquee, signing books and hopefully meeting festival goers over the whole weekend.
Tickets for the talk go on sale tomorrow (9th March) and here is the link to the event. Andy Beck at the Keswick Mountain Festival
Looking forward to seeing you there.
