Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the man hailed as the world’s Greatest Living Explorer, will be visiting Sheffield next summer.

In A Life at the Limits – which comes to the University of Sheffield Students’ Union Octagon Centre on Tuesday July 14 at 7.30pm - long-time friend and expedition partner Anton Bowring will lead Sir Ranulph on a personal journey as they discuss his life, from his ancestral heritage to the present day.

From the light-hearted to the strikingly poignant, A Life at the Limits will cover Sir Ranulph’s childhood, misdemeanours at school, army life and early expeditions, right through to the Transglobe Expedition and the recent Coldest Journey.

The evening will include tales from all of the record breaking and challenging projects which saw Sir Ranulph receive the Guinness Book of Records accolade as Greatest Living Adventurer.

Tickets are available from the Students’ Union Box Office, and the Arena Ticket Shop online at and
