Ray Mears at The Forum
Friday October 7, 2011, 20:45 pm
The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival promises a feast of literary treats with more than 600 of the world’s greatest writers, poets, politicians, thinkers and actors heading to the Regency town. Now in its 62nd year, 2011 promises the most ambitious and varied programme to date, with BAFTA-award winning actress Joanna Lumley, musician and radio broadcaster Jarvis Cocker, presenter and film critic Jonathan Ross and comedian Frank Skinner all taking to the Cheltenham stage.
Instantly familiar from TV series such as Bushcraft Survival and Northern Wilderness, bushcraft expert Ray Mears has tested his survival skills all over the world, whilst exploring the traditional cultures of indigenous peoples and following in the footsteps of noted explorers. In a hugely enjoyable event he looks back on some of his enthralling adventures.

Sounds like a great event!
