Just a few highlights of 2014 – broadcaster and journalist Ed Stourton will be interviewed about his book ‘Cruel Crossing’ which documents the stories of those who took the dangerous routes across the Pyrenees to escape Hitler’s Europe into Spain. Also in the mountains, Yorkshire climber Alan Hinkes is the only Briton to have climbed all fourteen 8000 metre peaks, the most dangerous mountains on the planet. Alan will give an illustrated talk about his book, ‘8000 Metres’, which details these epic ascents in ‘The Death Zone’.
There will also be local tales of WW1 hospitals, the story of Swaledale, walking to Istanbul and folk music.
