AN EVENING WITH LEVISON WOOD
Swansea Grand Theatre
Monday 6th March 7.30pm Best-selling author, photographer and TV presenter, Levison Wood, will be at Swansea Grand Theatre on Monday 6th March at 7.30pm, sharing his experiences and exploits as a modern day explorer.

With his keen desire to immerse himself fully in local cultures and customs, Levison Wood has delighted audiences around the globe with stories of his epic adventures, ranging from being chased by crocodiles and hippos in Africa, shot at by gunmen, falling off a mountain, being arrested more times than he can remember and meeting such illustrious characters as the Dalai Lama and George Clooney along the way.

In this adventure-filled one-man show, Levison recounts his amusing and sometimes poignant tales of life as a soldier in the Parachute Regiment and his subsequent transition into an explorer of international standing. This latest tour includes further tales and behind the scenes moments from his journeys walking the length of the Nile and the Himalayas, both of which were documented by Channel 4, alongside his most recent travels walking 1700 miles along the length of Central America, taking in eight countries from Mexico to Colombia and his bid to cross the treacherous Darien Gap.

With his honest accounts of life on the road, Levison hopes to challenge our preconceptions and inspire a new generation of adventurers with tales of hope and hospitality, firmly believing the more people go out and see the world, the better a place it will be. His shows have received rave reviews both across the UK and internationally.

Levison Wood’s forthcoming documentary series, ‘Walking the Americas’, has recently aired on Channel 4.

A GUIDE TO MINDFULNESS
Swansea Grand Theatre
Tuesday 7th March 7.30pm

Much loved US born comedian, actor and writer, Ruby Wax, is at Swansea Grand Theatre on Tuesday 7th March at 7.30pm, with her guide to mindfulness, Frazzled.

Ruby has become the ‘it girl’ of mental health campaigning, with a Master’s degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University. Frazzled is a forum for discussion and is a follow - up to her sell-out touring show and best-selling book, Sane New World, which helps us understand why we sabotage our sanity with our own thinking.

Her new best-selling book, ‘A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled’, is the basis for the discussion. Funny and insightful, this event is your passport to saner living. She might not be sane herself, but she does a pretty good imitation.

Tickets for this thought provoking evening are available from the Box Office on 01792 475715 or can be purchased online at www.swanseagrand.co.uk and are £20.50 selected concessions available.*
