Everest Revisited 1924-2024 - Exhibition Opening & Film Premiere

To mark 100 years since the British Everest expedition of 1924, on which George Mallory and Sandy Irvine were lost high on the mountain, the Alpine Club will be hosting a new exhibition, Everest 1924, which will profile the personalities at the centre of the expedition, including some of the local workers who made the venture possible, and consider the lasting legacy of one of the earliest bids for the "roof of the world".

As part of the exhibition's official opening, we will be holding a special evening event which will include the premiere of a new film about the 1924 Expedition. The film, titled Everest Revisited 1924-2024, uses extensive historical footage, as well as interviews with Everest scholars and mountaineers to tell the story of 1924 and to ask questions about what the mountain means to climbers and Nepalis 100 years on from this famous expedition.

The exhibition will run from 4 June to 25 July 2024, with this official opening taking place from 7PM on 11 June 2024. The offical opening is a free event and you can sign up to attend using the form below.
