Shelter Building with Belinda Kirk

Belinda Kirk


Cressing Temple Barns, Witham Road
Braintree, Essex CM77 8PD

Box Office:

Essex Book Festival

Belinda has walked across Nicaragua, searched for camels in China’s Desert of Death, discovered ancient rock paintings in Lesotho, pioneered inclusive expeditions for people with disabilities, lead dozens of youth development expeditions around the world and gained a Guinness World Record for rowing unsupported around Britain. An expert expedition leader, Belinda has managed remote trips for, amongst others Ray Mears, Chris Ryan & Bear Grylls.

Today she is the leading voice promoting the psychological benefits of adventure and our need for an #AdventureRevolution. Belinda launched Explorers Connect in 2009. It’s now a community of 28,000+ open to everyone from total beginners to experienced explorers to link with adventures, team-mates and adventure industry jobs.
