Alongside the collection of films, we’re joined on stage by endurance athlete Preet Chandi, MBE, also known as Polar Preet. As a British Army Officer, world-record-breaking explorer, and inspirational speaker, Preet embodies the values of determination, courage, and social responsibility. Her story is not just one of personal triumph but serves as a beacon of what’s possible for all, regardless of background, gender, or colour.
Preet’s many achievements include becoming the first woman of colour to complete a solo expedition in Antarctica (2021), and breaking two Guinness World Records in January 2023, for both the longest solo unsupported one-way polar ski journey for a woman and also the longest solo unsupported one-way polar ski journey overall. Beyond Antarctica, Preet has conquered three 4,000m mountains, including Mont Blanc, and has participated in multiple ultramarathons, notably the 156- mile Marathon des Sables in the Sahara desert. May 2023 sees the launch of her debut book (for young people) “The Explorers Guide to Going Wild: Find Adventure Anywhere”.
Films to be added soon.
