Matt Dickinson, veteran of Mount Everest, who spoke last year about his experiences on the world’s highest mountain, takes us this year to one of the last remaining wildernesses, the Antarctic.
Matt Dickinson is a filmmaker and adventurer who has successfully climbed Mount Everest, filming as he went, and lived to tell the tale of the catastrophic climbing season of 1996. He is also a veteran of the unforgiving wilderness that is the Antarctic, and this informed the writing of his 2006 novel Black Ice, a thriller set in Antarctica. Matt, who mesmerised a Kells audience last year with his account of his Everest adventure, will switch his attention to the more exposed landscape around the South Pole.
