Nick Butter bring his Tales of an Extraordinary World First Expedition to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House

Tyne Theatre & Opera House Monday 14th September 2020

British Endurance Athlete, writer and speaker, Nick Butter, best known for his global expedition ‘Running the World 196’, comes to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House on Monday 14th September 2020.

In November 2019, Nick was crowned the first person to run a marathon in every country in the world. Along with this, he sets a number of world records and has a wild, eclectic story to tell.

He brings this story to the theatre in 2020, with his show ‘An Evening with Nick Butter – The Tales of an Extraordinary World First Expedition’; tales of muggings, war zones, dog attacks, extreme exhaustion, and the sheer scale and diversity of our planet. His talk is accompanied with stunning photography and videography from around the world.

From a small shy boy in the south of England, with a passion for sport – to a successful career in banking, to then becoming one of the most widely travelled athletes in the world – and all before the age of 30. Nick Butter’s tales are sure to fascinate and inspire a captivated audience.

Nick says: “If I’m lucky enough to get to the point in life when I’m old and grey, chatting with my grandchildren I want to know I’ve explored every inch of the planet. I believe that it’s the crazy things, the things that no one is doing, and the things that we’re afraid to do… which are in fact exactly that which leaves a positive mark on the world.”
