About this event

Following British adventurer Chris Lucas and his actor father Niall as they canoe down one of Canada’s most remote and beautiful rivers, The Yukon Assignment is a breath-taking documentary exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can bring us together. So often we make no time to simply experience life and to share time with our loved ones, and Lucas’ film proposes an alternative: inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, embrace the unknown, and strike out on their own memorable adventures.

Visiting Dartington Hall

At our 1,200 acre estate, based in South Devon, there’s plenty to explore – from the natural beauty of the grounds, to our visitor attractions and year-round events programme. You can also make a stay of it with our historic hotel or campsite, and enjoy award-winning food and drink in our cafes and restaurants.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
