DESCRIBED by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has a life story that’s worth telling – and he’s planning to regale an audience at Brecon’s Theatr Brycheiniog with it on July 7.

His exploits, escapades and expeditions have taken him in almost every direction around the globe, including a 52,000-mile odyssey through both poles in the first circumpolar navigation of the Earth, and the first unsupported crossing of Antarctica and the first crossing of the Antarctic, by foot.

The oldest man to complete the gruelling one-week desert expedition Marathon des Sables, aged 71, whilst raising another £1m for Marie Curie Cancer Care, and fresh from the latest stage of his latest Global Reach Challenge, Ran is attempting to become the first person ever to cross both polar caps and summit the highest mountain on each continent.

The living legend embarks upon another adventure this summer taking to UK theatre stages to recount the hugely impressive and inspiring story of his exceptionally full life in an ‘audience with…’ style theatre show, Mind Over Matter, presented by adventure-based speakers specialists, Speakers from the Edge.

Leading over 30 expeditions, climbing to the highest peak on the planet and becoming the oldest Briton to do so, discovering the lost Arabian city of Ubar, climbing one of the world’s toughest ascents (the dreaded North Face of the Eiger) and conquering seven marathons, on seven continents, in seven consecutive days just three months after a massive heart attack, a three-day coma and a double bypass operation, Ran isn’t slowing down.

Mind Over Matter offers another opportunity to hear Sir Ranulph recount the personal journey through his life. From light-hearted to strikingly poignant, Mind Over Matter is the inspirational story of a fulsome life conquering several of the most challenging, record-breaking expeditions and adventures on planet Earth

Mind Over Matter is touring UK theatres in summer 2017 and will be showing at the Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon, on Friday, 7 July.
