Travels with a Penguin to Antarctica

Free Events

Event Description

Who takes a penguin with them on a trip to Antarctica? But Scott-the-penguin is no ordinary member of the family Spheniscidae. He has already accompanied his owner, Pen, on a trip around the world, including a trip down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and ventured as far north as Iceland. So when Pen saw a chance to visit the Frozen Continent, then, of course, Scott had to go too. Book this talk to hear their adventures with stunning scenery, wonderful wildlife, and a trip to the world's most southerly post office. Talk length 40 mins

Pen Turner

Meet the Host, Pen


Pen Turner spent the first fifty years of her life living in London, where she had pursued careers as varied as a librarian and a remedial massage therapist, until she made the decision to walk away from her old life, travel around the world and achieve some of the things on her ‘wish list’. Now happily settled in Shropshire, she gives talks to try and persuade other people that they should go out and fulfill their own dreams too.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
