Did you know...?

21st Sep 2014

Gavin Francis - Did you know ...


... that Gavin spent 14 months as base-camp doctor in Hailey on the Caird Coast of Antarctica?


... that it is said to be "easier to evacuate a casualty from the International Space Station than it is to bring someone out of Hailey in winter"?


... that you can see a beautiful animation and reading of the first page of "Empire Antarctica" on Gavin's website?



To find out more, come to his event -


Gavin Francis

"Empire Antarctica"

(chaired by Andrew Greig)

at Royal Hotel, Blairgowrie

on Saturday 11 October 2014

11:30 - 12:30



Information on how to buy your ticket HERE - but hurry!  Numbers limited!


I really enjoyed the event on Friday, and I am glad the audience did too.  It‘s been an absolute pleasure. It went really well, with a very warm audience - laughter from the start put me immediately at ease.

Off to Canada in the morning with Mark Billingham. Hope they‘re as appreciative as in Blairgowrie.
