On 6 June 1924, George Mallory set off for the summit of Everest for the third time with his young partner, Andrew Irvine. Next day they were glimpsed for the last time, through clouds, heading upwards. No-one knows what happened to them. In the years following his disappearance, Mallory was acclaimed as an all-British hero.

Handsome, charismatic, daring, he was a skilled public speaker, an athletic and technically gifted climber, a committed Socialist and a supremely attractive figure to both men and women. So, who was the real Mallory and what were the forces that made him and ultimately destroyed him?

Fallen recounts his last expedition and attempts to separate the man from the myth.

Please note: Each QUAD ticket is subject to a £1 transaction fee at checkout with the exception of bookings made by QUAD members. This £1 goes directly towards the running of QUAD.
