Tonight’s short films (above) focus on all things wet and wild, followed, after the interval, by an evening with ocean adventurer Olly Hicks. Since becoming the youngest person to row solo across the Atlantic at the age of 23, Olly’s passion for the sea has seen him undertake a range of daunting voyages, with the biggest yet to come – an attempt at the first solo row around the world, beginning in December 2018.
