An evening with Rebecca Stephens
The wilderness, and in particular the mountain landscape, is central to Rebecca’s life, where she loves to be and the classroom in which she chooses to teach. Rebecca has led numerous treks in the Himalayas – in Bhutan, Ladakh, Tibet and Nepal – and in Africa.
On 17, May 1993, Rebecca Stephens became the first British woman to climb Everest and was awarded an MBE for her achievement. The following year she went on to become the first British woman to scale the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. Her interest in climbing was ignited when, in her late twenties, she accompanied an Anglo-American expedition on Everest’s North East Ridge in 1989.
This wonderful talk will take you through every step of Rebecca’s incredible story and is accompanied by some amazing and spectacular photos, this is an evening that will entertain, excite and inspire and not one to be missed!
