House Programme

 Leaflet



It’s one of the great adventure stories of all time. How, in a bid to be the first to reach the South Pole, a band of English explorers led by Captain Robert Scott perished, leaving Scott’s diaries beside his frozen body. This epic tale of heroic failure was immortalised in a great cinematic triumph, Scott of the Antarctic. Now, a century on, we celebrate this epic journey along with one of the great polar explorers of our time, Dr Rebecca Lee Lok Sze, who will read Scott’s diary entries while the HK Phil plays the music by Ralph Vaughan Williams all against the backdrop of stunning Antarctic images from the legendary Herbert Ponting.
