A RENOWNED explorer will lead audiences through an evening of adventure when he arrives in the region.

The Royal Geographical Society will host his talk ‘Will Millard Downstream: Journeys on foot and raft through the world’s remotest jungles’ at Darlington Dolphin Centre from 7.30pm on Tuesday, February 25.
