5000 miles. 13 countries. 1 epic adventure.
Spend an evening with the greatest modern-day TV explorer as he uncovers the hidden mysteries of Arabia.
Arabia, even the name is controversial – a Western construct for a peninsula made up of states and countries. But whether lush and green, marshland, mountain, desert or holy land – whether peopled by Muslims, Christians, Jews, it is a part of the world that has beckoned Levison Wood for a long time.
Bestselling author, photographer and TV presenter Levison Wood share his experiences and exploits in his new book Arabia: A Journey Through the Heart of the Middle East. A former Officer in the British Parachute Regiment, Levison’s work has taken him around the world leading expeditions on five continents. He is an elected fellow of both the Royal Geographical Society and the Explorers Club and an Ambassador for Tusk.
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
