Banbury Young Homelessness Project (BYHP) have teamed up with Queens Road Community to bring a renowned meteorologist to Banbury.

BBC weatherman and Gardeners’ Question Time presenter Peter Gibbs will present an evening of Antarctic insights, including the most incredible images of the polar landscape, animals and scientific settlement.

Mr Gibbs spent two years at a remote British Antarctic base back in the 1980s. He returned this year accompanied by a BBC team that included Banbury-based journalist Matthew Teller.

This is the penultimate event in Queens Road’s year-long fundraising in aid of BYHP, and the two adventurers will share stories from their journey, following in the footsteps of Scott and Shackleton and reveal what camping out at -15C really feels like.

As part of the fundraising, there will also be a special raffle, with an array of exclusive Antarctic-themed prizes including a family ticket to see the penguins at London Zoo, a family ticket to Natureland Seal Sanctuary, merchandise from the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust and a 60cm cuddly penguin.

The Banbury Town Hall event is on November 10 from 7pm when the duo will start the evening with a 30 minute Q and A session.

Tickets are £10 or £8 for booking of ten or more from www.
