The Night of Adventure series will be making an appearance at Canary Wharf once again this March, bringing with it an ever eclectic collection of top explorers and daredevils to celebrate the spirit of adventure.
Like-minded adventurers will be joining forces to share their captivating stories of exploration, escapism and wonder. Each speaker will be limited to just 20 slides to accompany their tales, each slide leaving the screen after just 20 seconds. It’s fast. It’s furious. But ultimately, it’s a chance to be swept away to a world filled with adventure, all without leaving your seats.
All proceeds from this event will support the work of Hope and Homes for Children.
