Presented in association with The Met, Bury and The Unity Theatre, Liverpool

In 1953 beekeeper Edmund Hillary and porter Tenzing Norgay began a gruelling and treacherous ascent to conquer the summit of the world’s highest mountain – Everest.

Taking inspiration from Hillary and Norgay’s biographies and the Oscar nominated documentary The Conquest of Everest, Spike will re-tell the story behind one of the greatest achievements of the 20th Century.

Incorporating projected animation, puppetry, and a whole load of snow, two heroic performers will bring to life this epic tale of adventure, bravery and international fame.

The Met will be giving a free screening of The Conquest of Everest, on Saturday 13 February.
