A Photographic Odyssey: Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition Captured on Camera

An illustrated talk by Mark Cottle

On Ernest Shackleton’s third Antarctic expedition in 1914, his ship, the Endurance, became trapped in the pack ice. Shackleton's men rowed to the remote Elephant Island and from there Shackleton sailed for help to South Georgia over 800 miles away. This remains one of the most remarkable open boat journeys ever made. Frank Hurley, an Australian, was the expedition’s photographer and a pioneer in the emerging world of photo-journalism. Mark Cottle has always been fascinated by the sea and its stories and this lecture captures Hurley’s achievements as a photographer of the Antarctic.

Comedy Night with

Kernow King

Kernow King's newest show, "Splann!" (splendid in Cornish) was meant to look at all the wonderful things going on in Cornwall. But things changed, and before long, it ended up taking a bit of a wry look at some of the things that aren't so great about Cornwall. Be it customer advisors, shops shutting, being taught how to drive by your mum, having your testicles examined by your local doctor and so much more, the show is the perfect antidote to his original show, "Wonders of the Cornish Universe".

Optional fancy dress: theme ‘Cornish’. Prize for best outfit.


All tickets £13

To book your tickets, phone the Box Office on 01805 624624.
