I meant to write about the new exhibition coming to the Queen’s Gallery London for some time now and have been beaten by the Sunday Times who last week wrote a piece on the stunning exhibition entitled ‘The Heart of the Great Alone’. This exhibition opens at The Queen’s Gallery London October 21.
The Heart of the Great Alone exhibition promises viewers an intriguing and empathetic exhibition of one of Great Britain’s greatest periods of adventure. The exhibition includes official pictures, artefacts and memorabilia from Scott’s ill-fated journey to the South Pole as well as Shackleton’s attempted crossing two years later. The photographs of the stark terrain capture the hardships of Polar travel whilst other articles such as Wilson’s sketch of the light hearted South Polar Times newsletter juxtapose this.
Perhaps the most poignant attraction of the exhibit is the hand drawn sketch by Scott’s team mate Edward Wilson, who depicted the moment they realised the race had been lost and drew the flag planted by their Norwegian rivals near the South Pole. Wilson’s sketches were discovered when Wilson’s body was found and were passed onto King George V.
As one of our favourite corporate event venues in London, we’ve long recognised the uniqueness and exclusivity Buckingham Palace and the Queen’s Gallery provide. Starting next February, Team Tactics are able to offer our clients a truly wonderful corporate
evening event in London featuring the Heart of the Great Alone exhibition, as well as an inspiring talk from a descendent of Shackleton’s exhibition. Lt Col Henry Worsley is a career solider and polar explorer, related to Frank Worsley, the skipper on Shackleton’s ship The Endurance. Next month, to mark the 100 year anniversary of Scott and Amundsen’s expedition’s, Henry will recreate the same journeys over the original routes with two teams from the British Army – an event never repeated since 1911/12.
As part of this exclusive event Team Tactics are able to offer our guests fine dining at Mosimann’s private dining club. Mosimann’s offers sumptuous food in luxury private surroundings and is the perfect option for guests wishing to experience a memorable and complete London corporate event.
