Forthcoming Event - Musgrove Park Hospital Auction of Pledges. There is an Auction of Pledges at Exford Memorial Hall, West Somerset on Saturday, October 7th to raise funds towards the purchase of a new MRI SCANNER for Taunton Musgrove Park Hospital. Sir Ran has very generously donated an ICE PICK he used on Alpine and Ecuadorian training 2003-5. He was striving to become the first person to cross both ice caps and climb Everest - which he eventually succeeded. He has also donated two autographed copies of his books “Heat” and “Beyond the Limits". Even if you cannot attend the event, you can own these by submitting bids for the ice pick and books (separate bids) by contacting one of the organising committee - see the information on our Facebook fundraising page:

Forthcoming Event - An evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes. On Thursday 17 November, we will be hosting an exclusive evening at the stunning One Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London. Details and tickets are here

Forthcoming Event - Ranulph Fiennes and the The Transglobe Expedition Trust (TET) presents 'In my Element' - Amazing stories from the Land, Sea and Air at the The Royal Geographical Society, London on November 16th 2016 - 7pm. Full details are here

February 2016 - There has recently been set up (registered in Geneva) a Lecture Agency called FIENNES SPEAKERS.  This was set up without consultation with me.  I have nothing to do with the organisation and trust it does not result in any confusion due to my family name being used.  I have worked for several Speaker Agencies for many years and trust that none will be upset by this very unfortunate name choice - Ranulph Fiennes

June 2015 - A Life at the Limits sees Sir Ranulph Fiennes joined on-stage by his long-time friend and expedition partner Anton Bowring as he leads Sir Ranulph on a personal journey through his life, from his ancestral heritage to the present day.

From light-hearted to strikingly poignant, A Life at the Limits covers Sir Ranulph’s childhood, misdemeanours at school, army life and early expeditions, right through to the Transglobe Expedition and the recent successful completion of 'the toughest footrace on Earth', the Marathon des Sables, which includes all of the record breaking and immensely challenging projects - which saw Sir Ranulph receive the Guinness Book of Records accolade as Greatest Living Adventurer - while suffering frostbite and risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

September 2014 - An article published in the Daily Mail promoting Ran's new book 'Agincourt'. Link here
