Gala Dinner with Guest of Honour Lewis Pugh

14 June 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm


The Army Flying Museum is proud to present one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers, endurance swimmer and UN Patron of the Oceans, Lewis Pugh at a Fundraising Gala Dinner on Friday 14th June 2019.

Following on from the success of our Gala Dinner with astronaut, Major Tim Peake, come and join us again for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to listen live to one of the World's most inspirational speakers and vivid storytellers of all time.

Lewis Pugh is the only person to have completed a long distance swim in every ocean of the world. To date he has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks than any other swimmer in history and is the first person to swim across the icy waters of the North Pole. His dream is to make a difference to the world and raise awareness about the vulnerability of our oceans.







"Lewis Pugh doesn’t tell us what to do, he shows us what can be done."

Bill Clinton  42nd President of the United States of America


"You won’t find a more captivating story teller… Lewis stole the show at the World Economic Forum in Davos."

Adam Grant Professor | Wharton Business School

"Thank you for coming to speak to us. You have a very special gift. Not many people can speak to a group of world leaders like you did – with so much authority and passion. I could have heard a pin drop."

Ted Turner Founder of CNN

In late August 2018, to raise awareness of our maritime environment, Lewis completed an unprecedented swim of the length of the English Channel, a 330-mile journey which has taken 49 days, half a million strokes and 98,000 calories.  Over the past 30 years, Lewis has pioneered swims in the most challenging environments including the Antarctic and the North Pole.
