An Afternoon with Will Millard

Join us onboard the Pride of Hull on Thursday 14th October, in our Show Bar, as we bring you an afternoon of adventure with BAFTA award-winning writer and explorer Will Millard.  

Will loves to speak about his adventures, his expeditions, and his life spent living and working alongside some of the planet’s remotest peoples. With first hand stories from a life spent among the last hunter gatherers on earth, this talk will be illustrated with footage from his critically acclaimed series 'My Year with The Tribe' and 'Hunters of the South Seas', including images from over a decade of leading expeditions into the last unknown.


We have a fantastic program of events for you to enjoy, including welcome drinks, lunch, an opportunity to shop in our World Duty Free store and a meet and greet session with Will himself in the afternoon. This is the perfect event for networking with likeminded individuals, who share a passion for exploration and Anthropology. 


Tickets cost just £35pp and include welcome refreshments and a buffet style lunch. Find out more about this event below.

Will Millard is an adventurer, writer, and broadcaster, who specialises in recording traditional communities within the South Pacific and remote jungle expeditions. His multi award-winning BBC television series 'Hunters of the South Seas' and 'My Year With The Tribe' saw Will immersed with some of the last remaining subsistence hunter-gatherer communities left on earth: the Bajau, who spend their entire lives at sea; the Lamaleran whale hunters, who survive by hunting sperm whales by hand; and the last traditional Papuan Korowai, who still call their treehouses 'home' and believe forest gods control their destiny.

Prior to his presenting career, Will spent his twenties exploring the interior of New Guinea in search of long-lost tribal trade routes and made the first solo raft descent of the jungle river that splits West Africa's Sierra Leone and Liberia. He writes regularly for the national and international press, is a best-selling author and popular public speaker, and, when he isn't overseas, he presents documentaries on history, rivers, and angling, for BBC Wales and the BBC I player.
