As an explorer Levison has trekked thousands of miles through some of the world’s most testing environments including the Nile, Himalayas and the Arabian peninsula and his UK tour will see him reveal the lessons he has learnt on the road.

Levison said: “The Art Of Exploration presents me with a great opportunity to reveal the life lessons I have learnt and how we can all benefit from applying the philosophy of travel and the Art of Exploration to our normal everyday routines, so we can achieve a positive mindset and get things done.

“We all have our own journeys on which we have to travel - whether that is to the corners of the globe or by balancing day-to-day life. It is a challenge for us all at some point and I hope I can inspire the audience to embark on their own personal journeys.”

The Art Of Exploration is Levison’s third UK tour and along with hearing his fascinating anecdotes and honest experiences, audiences will be able to witness first-hand what Levison experienced through photography and footage from his extensive travels.

The Art of Exploration will be at Buxton Opera House on Friday October 21. Tickets, priced at £29.50, are on sale now at or call the box office on 01298 72190.
