Annual dive lectures held at the Royal Geographical Society in London return in 2014, with photographer Doug Allan and Monty Halls taking the stand.

The 2014 event will take place on Wednesday 19th March.

The yearly presentation is organised by the London Diving Chamber, based in St John’s Wood. Entry is free, with all donations given to the Scuba Trust.

Doug Allan needs no introduction. Over many years, Doug has built up a formidable reputation as one of the best wildlife photographers in the business. He specialises in filming in extreme environments, and has received critical acclaim for his work on Sir David Attenborough’s programmes, and much more besides.

He also happens to be an excellent after dinner speaker with some amazing stories of a life behind the lens.

Also on the roster is Monty Halls, the closest thing we have to a household diving celebrity. Ex-forces and marine biologist Monty has recently graced our small screens, fronting a show on Channel 5 with Rich Stevenson and Kevin Gurr of VR Technology.

Tickets for the dive lectures at the RGS in Kensington tend to sell out very quickly, so book your place via the LDC website now.

Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. See you there.
