This month we have:
- AGM : The clubs AGM starts at 1:00pm (card carrying members only), then at 2.30 the meeting begins
Speaking this month we have:
Jeremy Perrin – All you need to know about the Camino de Santiago
Jon Beardmore – The Great Game – 30,000 miles across Central Asia
In 2013 Jon set out to retrace the 200 years immortalised in “The Great Game” – a term for the strategic rivalry and conflict between the British Empire and the Russian Empire for supremacy in Central Asia.
Through interaction with the local people and landscapes, the aim was to compare the historical version with the modern day. He travelled from London to Russia along the Silk Road, through the “Stans”, China and SE Asia returning via India, Nepal, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey and finally back to Europe.
His aim: to find out if Central Asia is really as dangerous as we’re led to believe.
