Never Fear - Reliving the Life of Sir Francis Chichester

Thursday 26th January 2017 18:45 We are delighted to be able to announce that Ian Strathcarron has agreed to hold an illustrated talk about the life of Sir Francis Chichester. Lord Strathcarron is the author of several travel biographies and has just published "Never Fear - Reliving the Life of Sir Francis Chichester".
