To Eritrea and Ethiopia - retracing a Victorian Expedition

John Pilkington will give a slide/sound show about his recent journey through the Horn of Africa

John's inspiration was the daring mission mounted in 1868 to rescue European hostages, although John didn't take the elephants that his predecessors used!

An evening of history, geography,and adventure with John's usual reflections on the lives of the people he meets.

John has won awards for his previous work and has delighted Alton audiences with his traveller's tales - this will be no exception.
