Everest & Beyond: Meet Everest climber Stephen Venables
Stephen Venables was the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen. The stories of his travels have enthralled audiences all over the world and The British School in The Netherlands is pleased to welcome him on Thursday, 2 February from 19:00 – 21:00 at the Senior School.
Stephen Venables is a mountaineer, writer, broadcaster and public speaker.

His adventures have also taken him to the Rockies, the Andes, the Antarctic island South Georgia, East Africa, South Africa and of course the European Alps, where he has climbed and skied for over forty years.
Parents and friends of the BSN have the opportunity to join the BSN to hear Stephen speak about his experiences!
