Named by Guinness World Records ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure.

Join him in conversation with fellow adventurer Bear Grylls as they celebrate Fiennes’ 75th birthday and discuss the new edition of his bestselling autobiography, Mad, Bad, And Dangerous to Knowat this one-off event.

Fiennes has risked life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken. His many record-breaking achievements include being the first man to reach both poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Oceans, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.

There is no one better qualified than global adventurer, bestselling author and Chief Scout Bear Grylls to get the inside story of an unmatched career.

Grylls, who has contributed a preface to the new edition, says: ‘Ran has always managed to do things in a wonderfully unique style that somehow sets him apart. Always up and beyond, always that little bit further. Always the leader and always the best. I am very proud to share the stage with Ran to celebrate his 75th year and the new edition of Mad, Bad, And Dangerous to Know.’
