Special Screening: Spectre - To the End of the Earth

Special Screening: Spectre - To the End of the Earth Leo Houlding presents the premiere of Spectre - To the End of the Earth, charting the highs and lows of an extraordinary expedition.

Late last year, climber, adventurer and Kendal patron Leo Houlding set out alongside Jean Burgun and Mark Sedon with a huge objective: a three-phase trip to Antarctica with the dual aims of climbing one of the most remote mountains on the planet, the Spectre, and completing a complete trans-continental traverse utilising traditional sled-hauling techniques and modern snow-kiting technology.

Fifty-seven days, 1,700km and 31 camps later, the team arrived at Union Glacier having completed one of the logistically complex and ambitious undertakings ever, redefining modern exploration and adventure. The three men travelled by ski-kiting, pulling sleds of up to 200kg, and were frequently pinned down in their camps by vicious storms.

Leo will present the premiere of the Spectre film, charting the highs and lows of this extraordinary expedition.
