He’ll be in Tunbridge Wells as part of his tour

Journalist Simon Reeve is bringing his first-ever theatre tour to Tunbridge Wells this November.

The show will feature tales from over 15 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 has travelled through over 120 countries and his BBC documentaries have sold to over 60 countries around the world.

An Audience With Simon Reeve includes never-before-seen documentary footage and a question and answer session.

Simon’s BBC documentary series include Caribbean, Sacred Rivers, Indian Ocean, Tropic of Cancer, Equator, Tropic of Capricorn, Pilgrimage, Ireland, Australia, Greece, Big Life Fix, and his two new series Turkey and Russia.

He has received a One World Broadcasting Trust Award for “an outstanding contribution to greater world understanding” the prestigious Ness Award from the Royal Geographical Society, and the Special Contribution Award at the Travel Media Awards.

Most of Simon’s documentaries combine travel and adventure with global environmental, wildlife, and conservation issues, and have taken him across jungles, deserts, mountains and oceans, and to some of the most beautiful, dangerous and remote regions of the world.

He has dodged bullets on frontlines, hunted with the Bushmen of the Kalahari, 
dived with manta rays, seals 
and sharks, survived malaria, walked through minefields, tracked lions on foot, been taught to fish by the President of Moldova, adopted by former head-hunters, and detained for spying by the KGB.

An Audience with Simon Reeve will be coming to the Assembly Hall Theatre on November 27.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
