Desert Lecture at VSC, London,
on 26th April - comments...

What a splendid evening last Thursday & thank you for a most engaging illustrated talk of your exploits.The historical content was just right & very helpful. Brian Stevens

This really was an excellent and most professional presentation - and a great social event as well! Thank you so much for what was in every way a really memorable and highly enjoyable occasion - accompanied by excellent script, performers, photos, and musical accompaniment! Robert

Just to say how much we enjoyed and were impressed by your presentation yesterday. A great success and clearly enjoyed by your audience. Adrian Thornton

Hi there - just to say what a really excellent evening that was. Many, many congratulations on realising the whole event. I know what a huge amount of energy went into it all (the trip itself notwithstanding!) You managed to convey the more poetic and mysterious side of the desert experience along with the more factual elements and the fun aspect of the actual trip. Very entertaining! The venue was excellent as well. I think people were blown away! Simon

We were really awestruck by the magnitude of the journey you undertook and the beauty of the landscape that unfolded from your magnificent photography. Thank you for bringing a magical journey to us! Love Laura Plumbley

I really enjoyed your show and I thought the photography was fantastic, particularly the light and shade on the sand dunes. Best of luck Anthony Hopkinson

What a great evening and fascinating lecture, I wouldn't have missed it for anything. Many, many congratulations - I really felt I was there and the planning and organization must have been quite something. I would have been constantly worried about getting stuck in the sand ! Thank you for giving us such a wonderfully interesting lecture - brilliantly put together and presented. Much love Lavinia x

Dear Kit - What a 'tour de force'! We all loved every minute of it and well done for putting it all together - Love Penny & Derek

Wonderful evening - you put it together so beautifully and with such élan - Virginia and Peter

A great feat, modestly recounted by its inspirer, and a treat to listen to, as well as providing reassurance to any over-sixties who may be wondering what the next decade may bring! Benedict

Little did I know... what you had in mind! Your slide show was much more than that - your still photographs had a life of their own, moved as they were by the music and the emotional drama of the planning, the courage to set off into the vast desert with only the supplies on your roof, the surprising archaeological discoveries, and of course, reaching your goal! Thanks for treating your friends to a marvellous evening. Love, Alice

I greatly enjoyed your talk yesterday evening. Many thanks and well done. Best wishes Patrick Baty
