Michael Palin to speak at Queen Elizabeth Hall

11 September 2008
Michael Palin's travelling companions haven't always been of the highest calibre – take for example, the herd of goats he had to journey with on a Mauritanian iron-ore train.

But apart from goats* anyone's welcome this November at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London.

Michael Palin is inviting the public to journey with him on a rolling, perambulating, dog-sledding, camel-roping reminiscence, with Around the World in 80 Ways, a talk at Queen Elizabeth Hall. Michael Palin says:

"Around the World in 80 Ways gives me a chance to savour, deplore, extol and generally celebrate the extraordinary ways of getting about the world that my crew and I have experienced... If you want to know how I see the world, this is it."
Around the World in 80 Ways is a fundraising event for Campaign for Better Transport.

* You could always ask if you can bring a goat.
