Ladies and Gentleman
From the day he was found in a Harrods carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital, Andy McNab has lived an extraordinary life. Brought up on the gritty housing estates of Peckham, South East London, as a teenage delinquent, he kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years – on five continents.
During the first Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'.
The patrol infiltrated Iraq in January 1991, but was soon compromised. A fierce firefight with Iraqi troops ensued and the patrol was forced to escape and evade on foot to Syria. Three of the eight men were killed; four were captured after three days on the run; one escaped.
One of the four taken prisoner, McNab was held for six weeks and was relentlessly and savagely tortured. He suffered nerve damage to both hands, a dislocated shoulder, kidney and liver damage and contracted hepatitis. After six months of medical treatment he was back on active service.
Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS in February 1993.
ON OCTOBER THE 15TH AT THE FORUM NORTHALLERTON YOU WILL HEAR IT ALL FROM THE MAN HIMSELF.
ALL TICKETS £30 AND INCLUDE A SIGNED HARDBACK COPY OF ANDY McNAB's NEW BOOK WHATEVER IT TAKES. TICKETS AVAILABLE FIRST COME FIRST SERVED.

Celebrity Life Stories and O'Sullivan Events once again have the privilege to present:
Ladies and Gentleman,
Listening to Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ incredible stories leaves you dumbfounded and in a state of disbelief.
From his self-deprecating tales of academic failure, through his time in the Forces, to discovering lost Middle Eastern cities and of course, his many and varied expeditions, it’s amazing how much one man has crammed into his life
Following a host of sell out shows at the Ramside Hall Hotel ( twice ), in Durham, the Grand Connaught Rooms, in London then more intimate night’s at Bingley arts centre and the Victoria Hall Keighley the audiences were captivated by the stories and left open-mouthed at the challenges faced and conquered by Sir Ran, his first wife Ginny and countless colleagues like Dr Mike Stroud, who have faced every challenge with him.
Three things stand out firstly from the big screen video entrance the 50 minute description of his life and the audience question and answer sessions that follow. He is not one to boast, he does not suffer fools gladly and he has a very dry but funny sense of humour. It is not for the faint hearted either, with a couple of pictures of hands and feet that had been subjected to extreme cold and the ravaged faces exposed to pure Ozone.
Among the many physical problems Sir Ran describes, including heart-attacks and diabetes, one is very evident. Frostbite cost the explorer the fingers on his left hand and such was the pain during his wait to have them operated on in the UK (you have to wait five months on medical grounds) his description of literally taking matters into his own hands with his wife Ginny was as a bleak and matter-of-fact as any story you’ll ever hear.
It is a privilege to be in such an incredible man’s company. He is undoubtedly a Great Briton and the World’s Greatest Living Explorer. Sir Ranulph Fiennes is super human and a super human too.
If his story were not true you would not believe it and if you have not seen him live then this event is an absolute must.
When the night has finished Sir Ran will host a book signing where guests can purchase any of his books and have them personally signed and dedicated by the man himself.VIP Tickets – ONLY 24 AVAILABLE
