The Ice Maiden Speaketh at Castle House Hotel in Hereford. Zanna Baker will talk about & show photos from her historic expedition Across Antartica.

In January 2018, aged 29, Zanna Baker was one of the Ice Maiden team of 6 women that became the first all-female team to cross Antarctica unassisted, using muscle-power alone. Pulling sledges and battling temperatures of -50°C
and wind speeds of over 60mph, the team completed the 1704km distance in just over 61 days – the first team to do the crossing with no prior polar experience. A Regional Advisor for the British Army, Zanna has travelled extensively and it was a two-month mountaineering and scientific expedition to South Georgia and the Falkland Islands with the British Exploring Society, when she was 18, that inspired her to try for the team. She says “Having never been the fittest or the fastest in life, I firmly believe that doing something extraordinary is possible for everyone, and that we should never underestimate our abilities”.
