Simon Parker is an award-winning travel writer and broadcaster who has reported from well over 100 countries by the age of 34 for the BBC, The Telegraph and Amazon Prime.
In this multimedia presentation of short films, photos, audio clips and anecdotes he talks about cycling 3,427 miles around ‘Pandemic Britain’ during 2020 and 2021. He travelled to the furthest corners of Britain, including Shetland, Scilly, the Highlands, Cumbria and the North York Moors to find out how the pandemic had impacted people of all backgrounds.
This is a ground level portrait of Britain, with dozens of unique stories. Farmers, fishermen, artists and musicians. Young, old, rich and poor. Simon also talks about his own struggles with anxiety, bereavement and mental health.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A and his new book ‘Riding Out’ will be available to purchase.
