Half-time oranges, the smell of deep heat and absolutely no heavy petting. Expect all of this as we work over this evening's topic of 'How to live well and die old.'
Our talks begin with James Cracknell. Legendary Olympian, real life adventurer, man of steel and father of three. James will be talking about the huge role that the mind has to play, in everything from winning gold medals to being in a kayak with Ben Fogle for ages.
Next, Dr Pixie McKenna, the TV-GP who's seen it all, will impart her thoughts and tips on how to live forever (or die trying). And amongst all that, London's first and finest street running team, Run Dem Crew, will be keeping attendees on their toes. All under the floodlights at the innocent Sports Hall.
In his 13 year career, James became one of Britain’s most successful athletes of all time, with 2 Olympic Gold Medals and 6 World Championship titles.
Since his retirement, he's become an adventurer, a marathon runner, set records and overcome physical and mental difficulties.
