A group of lucky Brisbane-based travel advisors were recently treated to a spectacular night out with Ponant Yacht Cruises and Expeditions, equipped with VIP access to meet the “Ab-Fab” Joanna Lumley as she hosted and narrated Blue Planet II Live in Concert.
This is Lumley’s first time on stage in Australia. She is one of the most recognisable and loved British personalities, best known as Patsy in the hit comedy series, Absolutely Fabulous. She is also known for her humanitarian and charity work across the world.
This unique concert experience follows the success of the BBC Studios Natural History Series by Sir David Attenborough.
The live incarnation brought the wonders and mysteries of the planet’s oceans and its characterful inhabitants to the stage, beautifully accompanied by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
With a love of the ocean and a spirit of discovery, the trade event was a perfect synergy for Ponant Yacht Cruises and Expeditions.
