Hilary Bradt: Taking the Risk – My Adventures in Travel and Publishing

at Les Cotils
Wednesday 01 May from 14:30 to 15:30

Bradt Guides, the UK’s largest independent travel publisher, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

The founder Hilary Bradt recalls the highs and lows of budget travel in the 1970s, and starting a publishing company in a happy state of ignorance. In this entertaining talk she recalls some of her more bizarre experiences with the media, including finding herself trying to demonstrate ‘10 uses for condoms in the jungle’ for BBC2.

In conversation with Gillie Revill.
