Special Guest Talk – Darren Clarkson King


Darren Clarkson King, known to many as Daz, has had a diverse and colourful paddling career that’s still in full flurry and has taken him all over the world to remote gorges, multi-day expeditions, first descents, solo descents and highly iconic rivers and locations.

Come and join us on 22 February for his special guest talk, ‘Twenty Years of Street Food and I’m Still Alive’.

This talk is your chance to get into the eccentric and straight-talking mind of one of kayaking’s most interesting and bewildering expedition paddlers. Find out what’s inspired him to create a life in the Himalayas, swapping everyday luxuries for a river lifestyle.

Darren is a lovely, warm, smiley personality that really enjoys being out on the water and paddling with others. However, his no-nonsense approach can sometimes feel close to the mark. Please come along ready to take things with a pinch of salt and expect this evening to get rowdy, loud, eye-opening and funny.

This is a free event, however, we will be asking for donations in support of the Mountain Training Trust, the charity that runs Plas y Brenin on a not-for-profit basis.

The talk will start at 8pm; our bar will be open beforehand for meals and drinks.
