On Christmas day 2017, Scott became the youngest person to achieve this unsupported and unassisted adventure despite having never put on a ski before. An officer of the Royal Gurkha Rifles the journey took thirty-eight days across crevasses, ice fields, glaciers and minus 40c temps. Come along to hear Scott hilariously recall what alone in Antarctica does to your mind as well as the challenge of going to the toilet in minus 40c. Tickets are available from or the Barcombe Village Shop, adults £10 and under 18’s £5, to include tea and cakes. All his pain was endured to raise money for the Gurkha Welfare Trust.
