Join the Scientific Exploration Society for a special celebration of Latin America held at Canning House, with an illustrated presentation by Colonel John Blashford-Snell.

The evening will celebrate the many expeditions carried out in Latin America under the banner of the Society, since the epic first crossing on the Darien Gap in 1972, to the recent successful expedition in Colombia’s Amazonas region. The event will be introduced by His Excellency Néstor Osorio, the Colombian Ambassador, and an illustrated presentation will be given by the eminent explorer Colonel John Blashford-Snell, President of the Scientific Exploration Society and Señorita Yolima Cipaguata, the Society’s representative in Latin America.

There will be a drinks reception with canapes, followed by the presentation along with a special auction in aid of the Society’s work and to help the Ticuna people of the Colombian Amazonas. Bidding for the auction will open a month prior to the event to allow absentee bids.

Tickets cost £50 and can be purchased via Eventbrite. Alternatively contact Cat Walker from the SES by emailing
