If you've never heard about our show before and you've just clicked through from somewhere, hello.

Our show is about Captain Scott, Ernest Shackleton and the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.  We tell stories, we sing songs, we project illustrations and photographs, we make people cry a little and laugh a little and celebrate the indomitable spirit of that titanic age.  We get very nice reviews for it and people tell us they like it a lot, we enjoy doing it and we're looking forward to bringing it to Australia.

Explorers Club: Antarctica at Illumefest

We'll be taking the Explorers Club: Antarctic on a wee jaunt over the the Coromandel in a couple of weeks for thier inaugural 'Illumefest' - they're lighting up Coromandel Town for midwinter and we're going to be projecting our multimedia show as a part of their Saturday Night midwinter celebrations.

We haven't played Coromandel Town before, it'll be good to share some stories of Antarctic struggle and survival on an outdoor stage in midwinter....

More details here, we're playing the evening of Saturday 5 July at about 8pm on the main street.
