TRAVEL writer and explorer John Pilkington will be returning to Portsmouth on Friday to talk about his latest adventures to Georgia and Afghanistan.

John is a BBC Radio 4 broadcaster and recently won an award from the Royal Geographical Society for popularising geography.

John’s talk, which will take place at the Discovery Centre at Portsmouth RC Cathedral, will be illustrated with photographs he took along the way while touring the countries.

The event will begin at 7pm but guests are asked to arrive by 6.45pm.

Guests will be served with a light supper and will have the opportunity to buy Christmas cards and other gifts. There will also be a bar and raffle.

Proceeds from the event will be shared between John’s chosen charity, Practical Action and Oxfam water and sanitation projects in Africa.

There will be plenty of free parking available at the Discovery Centre.

Tickets price £10, students £5 are available from Owen Plunkett on (023) 9225 4959 or Sue James on (023) 9225 0267.
