An evening with BBC Coast presenter Nicholas Crane

Join Nicholas Crane for an entertaining evening at Stapleford Granary as he explores maplines, both imaginary and real. Nicholas will begin with prehistoric mental maps, journey through Afghanistan, and examine the life of Mercator, the first modern mapmaker. The longstanding BBC programme Coast will feature, plus the story of a 10,000-kilometre walk that would have been impossible without Mercator. There will also be a journey by bicycle across Asia and a walk along England’s Prime Meridian. There may even be time for delving into a bit of pyschogeography too!
