Bushcraft expert Ray Mears appears live in Carlisle


TV explorer Ray Mears returned to our screens this month with his new show, Australian Wilderness.

In the midst of this seven-part series, the much-loved adventurer will be heading to Cumbria with his live tour.

Ray appears at the Sands Centre, in Carlisle, on Friday November 3, taking the audience on a cultural and spiritual journey in Born To Go Wild.

From a very young age Ray discovered the joys of exploring the Wilderness, the most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet. His fascination with this environment that has not been modified by civilised human activity, has greatly shaped his life.

Ray Mears has has devoted himself to the wild life – living in and off the land and teaching others how to respect and enjoy nature.

So skilled is he at bushcraft that Northumbria police recruited him in to help track down on-the-run killer Raoul Moat in 2010.

For more than 20 years, his TV programmes have brought the great outdoors into our livingrooms, he has roughed it in - and – building a bed and fire, using bare branches, twigs and ingenuity and finding food from foraged scraps.

His TV career started in 1994 with Wild Tracks for the BBC. He worked for the BBC producing survival and bushcraft programmes until 2010 when he switched to ITV, which is broadcasting the new Australian Wilderness

Ray Mears appears at The Sands Centre on November 3, and tickets are available from the venue's box office.
