This memorial lecture in honour of Doug Scott, the iconic mountaineer and humanitarian, will be given by Leo Houlding, one of Britain’s top climbers. He will give an illustrated lecture about his epic adventures in the mountains in the last 25 years and will report back on his recent July 2023 expedition to Baffin Island. There will be lots of breathtaking short videos, inspiring landscapes and entertaining anecdotes. Doug’s new biography ‘Mountain Guru’ will be available for sale as well as some signed mountain prints which will be auctioned. This event will raise money for Community Action Nepal, which was established by Doug Scott to improve the standard of living of remote mountain communities in Nepal by supporting health posts, schools and livelihood projects.
