An Audience with Simon Reeve

Simon Reeve on a mountain

The BBC TV presenter recounts shocking, inspirational and hilarious tales from over fifteen years of travelling to the most remote and extreme corners of the planet.

From being chased by pirates, hounded by the Mafia and bombed by Columbian Barons, Simon Reeve has travelled to over 120 countries and his resulting documentaries have been shown worldwide to unreserved acclaim. An audience with Simon Reeve will see him share just a few of the memorable stories from his off-piste adventures augmented by multi-media footage – and the evening will conclude with a short question and answer session.
