Join us at Leeds Beckett as we showcase and celebrate the achievements of wounded, injured and sick serving military personnel and veterans.

On 26 October 2018, a team of wounded serving military personnel and veterans, led by Carnegie Great Outdoors and the Royal British Legion, embarked on a mission across the Himalayas. Their aim – to reach the summit 16 days later - on Remembrance Day.

Now, three months on, some of the team are reuniting at Leeds Beckett to talk about their mission, what inspired them to accept the challenge and how they feel now.

You will also have the opportunity to share their experience in our exhibition, which showcases images taken by team members, and learn about the research surrounding the expedition. You can even support the Royal British Legion by buying one of the images and take a little piece of the adventure home with you.
