Big Shakeout Friday’s Entertainment Announced
By alpjim | 10, Aug, 2011
We are pleased to confirm the entertainment for Friday night at the Big Shakeout.
Presented by Alpkit & Verabrate Graphics “Word of Mouth” will be a night of discovery and inspiration hosted by Niall Grimes.
See Niall interview his illustrious guest list of adventurists live on stage as they plug their “holidays” to far off lands. Random, sarcastic, usually offensive but more often than not simply brilliant, Niall will ensure he digs deep to find out where that sponsors money really went. Fast paced and ever changing, Word of Mouth is ideal for the Friday night. Some guests you may have seen before, but we can guarantee you’ll hear stories never told before. Don’t worry if you can’t escape the daily grind to get there for the start, this is a lecture you can dip in and out of. However you’ll be gutted you’ll have missed a bit.
Do you think you could be a guest? Have you been on an adventure with a tale to tell or maybe your planning an expedition and are looking to promote it to gain sponsorship and support. If you or your group have a story tell and 10 or so slides to illustrate it lets us know by the end of August. There are no boundaries on the activities, round the world cyclists, speed alpinists or cross channel swimmers can all apply. If selected you’ll be expected to attend the Big Shakeout on the 14 October for a 5 to 10 minute guest slot.
If you would like to be one of Nialls guests, claim fame and glory and the trimmings that go with that please send a short 100-200 word summary of your trip (or propsed trip) together with some imagery that portrays the feel of your adventure to firstname.lastname@example.org.
