WE ARE VERY SORRY BUT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Unfortunately JJ has to pull out due to surgery. Please join us in wishing JJ, his family and medical team strength and success in the weeks ahead. We hope to run the event at a later date.

As a Royal Marine, JJ Chalmers’ life changed in a second when he was blown up by an Improvised Explosive Device on routine patrol in Afghanistan. He survived and, after gruelling operations and rehab, went on to win a gold medal at the first Invictus Games, star in BBC’s Road to Santiago and forge a career as a presenter for the BBC and Channel 4. JJ reflects on his journey so far in the 2019 Donald Gorrie Lecture.

Followed by refreshments.
