Sir Chris Bonington - Life and Times Lecture

NEWMC are proudly hosting Sir Chris Bonington as our Annual speaker this year.


Sir Chris Bonington is Britain's best known mountaineer and one of the most successful expedition leaders in history. He began climbing at the age of 16 and has undertaken 19 Himalayan expeditions, including 4 to Everest.  He is renowned for having made many first ascents in the Alps and all the greater ranges of the world.

Sir Chris was the first mountaineer on the lecture circuit and, this autumn, he will present his Life & Times , covering his sixty years spent in the mountains.  With original images and raw footage, this is a rare opportunity to hear about some of the greatest climbing adventures of the twentieth century.



Tickets are £22.00 each, with no booking fee. A printable online ticket will be sent to you, or you can bring your booking confirmation on the night

About Us

The club's history, future, commitments and about them all




The North East Wales Mountaineering Club

Established in 2007, the Club is fairly new, but already has nearly 50 full members throughout the country, although primarily based in and around North East Wales.


We run a varied programme of activities including regular outdoor meets both in the UK and abroad, midweek evening climbing at local crags and climbing walls (depending on the time of year!) and social events..

Potential members are free to join us for a couple of meets to see if they'll understand our sense of humour, and if you like us, we'd be glad to have you join us! You'd pay an annual membership fee, and then all activities cost whatever they cost, so that may just be a case of sharing the fuel cost, or paying for overnight accomodation & food somewhere. 

For technical activities such as rock climbing or winter mountaineering, the club does not provide instruction for beginners, but once able to operate safely at a basic level, newcomers to the sport will find a wealth of experience within the Club to learn from.
