Thirteen Lives: The Thai Cave Rescue

Event Information


Fri 17 Sep

Thirteen Lessons That Saved Thirteen Lives is John Volanthen’s nail-biting account of the incredible Thai cave rescue that gripped the world and dominated headlines for 10 days in 2018.

After 10 days trapped in a flooded cave complex in Northern Thailand, and after an enormous search effort, 12 missing boys and their soccer coach were rescued from the Tham Luang Cave. The success of this almost impossible mission is down to the leadership of John, a legendary British cave-diver. This is his account of how the rescue he planned and executed saved 13 young lives due to his and his fellow divers expertise and bravery.

Soon to be made into a major documentary called The Rescue due to be released this October and a Hollywood movie in 2022 entitled Thirteen Lives. John Volanthen is consulting on and featuring in both films.

John will be talking about his book THIRTEEN LESSONS THAT SAVED THIRTEEN LIVES and will be answering questions at the end of the event.
