The BMC present a carnival or words, performance, art, food and atmosphere to mark 70 years since Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hilary stepped onto the summit of the world’s most celebrated mountain.
Come along and hear why this remote cone of ice and rock still holds a magnetic draw for anyone who loves the mountains, and how it feels to stand on top.
This show is about more than mountaineering and will show the human stories that exist around the peak.
Hear what it means to the Nepalese who live in its shadow, hear about the country and hear stories of the mountain you did not know.
The bougie charms of Sheffield’s best-kept-secret, The Hideaway, will be the setting for this unique show and the evening will be all about the atmosphere.
The talks start at 8 but come along early (doors open 6:30pm) to hang out, chat and relax, but most importantly to enjoy a fabulous Nepalese feast prepared by Kathmandu-curry master, The Hungry Buddha. Vegetarian thali included in ticket price.
As well as that, hear from the guides who lead people there, and see art from Nepali artist Manish Harijan and Sheffield local Alex Ekins.
This event will be better than standing on top of the mountain.
Presented by the BMC, hosted by Niall Grimes
