An Evening with Michael Palin – Erebus: The Story of a Ship

Mon 24 Sept 2018 | 7.00pm

Presented by Waterstones Newcastle

Michael Palin will be coming to Tyne Theatre & Opera House to talk about his latest book, Erebus.

In his major new work, Michael Palin – former Monty Python stalwart and much-loved television globe-trotter – brings to life the world and voyages of HMS Erebus, from its construction in the naval dockyards of Pembroke, to the part it played in Ross’s Antarctic expedition of 1839-43, to its abandonment during Franklin’s ill-fated Arctic expedition, and to its final rediscovery on the seabed in Queen Maud Gulf in 2014.
