The event, to be held at the Football Club, is going to be a banquet dinner with the highlight being an illustrated lecture by Michael Palin, "Around the World in 20 Years". The dinner has been arranged so that no less than half of the ticket price for the dinner goes to charity.
The aim of the dinner is to make a substantial contribution from Hong Kong to the Royal Geographical Society's President's Appeal, which is the culmination of a 10-year programme entitled "Unlocking the Archives", the aim of which is to make the RGS's 10 million maps, priceless artifacts and unequalled library accessible to the whole world, in addition to just Fellows and Members.
Michael Palin was elected President of the Royal Geographical Society in 2009, following an illustrious career which took him from a successful student at Oxford to long-running Monty Python fame, to A Fish Called Wanda, to the world's best loved maker of travel documentaries.
