Almost 100 years to the day after Captain Scott reached the South Pole, Felicity Aston became the first woman in history to ski across Antarctica alone.
Using her own footage and images from her expedition in January, Felicity will recount her journey in Alone in the Antarctic at The Radlett Centre at 8pm next Wednesday, October 3.
For 59 days Felicity dragged 85kg of supplies 1,744 km across the coldest continent on earth, enduring temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees and storm force winds.
Spending two months alone in such an extreme landscape, where even the smallest mistakes can prove treacherous, was a gruelling yet remarkable experience.
The Antarctica has held an enduring fascination for explorers as the only continent that is entirely covered in ice all year round, an environment so hostile that it has no indigenous population and supports barely any vegetation.
Tickets are £15 with concessions £14.
