An Evening with Levison Wood | The Alhambra Theatre, Dunfermline | Friday, 23. February 2018

Following his successful tour earlier this year, best-selling author, photographer and TV presenter Levison Wood will be taking his one-man show to further theatres across the UK in February and March 2018, sharing his experiences and exploits as a modern day explorer. With his keen desire to immerse himself fully in local cultures and customs, Levison Wood has delighted audiences around the globe with stories of his epic adventures, ranging from being chased by crocodiles and hippos in Africa, shot at by gunmen, falling off a mountain, being arrested more times than he can remember and meeting such illustrious characters as the Dalai Lama and George Clooney along the way.

In this adventure-filled show, Levison shares his amusing and sometimes poignant recollections of life as a soldier in the Parachute Regiment and his subsequent transition into an explorer of international standing. ‘An Evening With Levison Wood' will include tales and behind the scenes moments from his journeys walking the length of the Nile, the Himalayas and the Americas, all of which were documented by Channel 4, as well as the people and places that inspired him as a younger man to follow this life of adventure. With his honest accounts of life on the road, Levison hopes to challenge our preconceptions and inspire a new generation of adventurers with tales of hope and hospitality, firmly believing the more people go out and see the world, the better a place it will be. His shows have received rave reviews both across the UK and internationally.

Levison’s new book ‘Eastern Horizons’, about his travels as a 22 year-old-man hitchhiking the Silk Road, will be published by Hodder & Stoughton on November 2nd 2017, with the paperback of ‘Walking The Americas’ to follow in early spring 2018.
