CORONA VIRUS UPDATE :

It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Alex Hibbert 

Polar Eskimo 

ONLINE BOOKING FOR THIS EVENT HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE TO BOOK ON THE DOOR OF THE EVENT (30 MINUTES PRIOR TO START TIME, CASH PURCHASES ONLY).

In December of 2013, Alex Hibbert led an international quartet of polar explorers to the extreme north of Arctic Greenland.

After a huge storm destroyed their intended route to the North Pole in the darkness of winter, instead of retreating, they decided to explore the beautiful but unforgiving region of Avanerriaq, the home of the Polar Eskimos. What followed was six months of harsh education, gripping adventure and twenty unruly sled dogs.

Alex Hibbert tells the story of keeping a team of twenty-somethings alive in the unforgiving barren icefields of the polar north and the fears, thrills and kindness that living with the most traditional
community of Inuit on Earth can provide.
