But for a simple twist of fate…..Phil Hawes

7 February 2024 :7:30 PM - 9:15 PM

The story of Tom Bourdillon, Gresham School’s “nearly man”. Phil will describe to us how, just days before Hillary and Tensing reached the summit of Mt. Everest in 1953, Bourdillon and his companion Charles Evans reached the South Summit of the peak, just 100 M from their goal. They have gone down in mountaineering history as the “nearly men” of Everest.

Meet at the Sheringham Museum at the Mo.
7.00 for a 7.30 start.
The museum is on Lifeboat Plain. Please use the School Entrance towards the rear of the building.
