A GRIPPING tale of gunfights, hostage rescues and heroic endeavours is coming to Warrington as TV star Jason Fox heads to town.

The former Special Forces soldier and star of SAS: Who Dares Wins and Inside the Real Narcos is embarking on his first tour later this year to present Life at the Limit with a date at Parr Hall on November 13.

Holly Jones, from Parr Hall, said: "Life at the Limit is a breathtaking story of Special Forces soldiering – a chronicle of operational bravery, adventure, and courage on and off the battlefield.

"Jason’s appetite for adventure and extremes has no limit and has led him to take on some amazing challenges both in the military (Royal Marines, Special Boat Service) and in his television roles (SAS: Who Dares Wins, Inside the Real Narcos, and The Final Mission: Foxy’s War).

"He is also a world record-breaking rower and adventurer who has embarked on expeditions across Alaska, the North Pole, and most recently the River Yukon.

"Now embarking on his first tour, Jason will regale audiences with the incredible moments he has encountered throughout his career and touch on the very different battles he faced back home, including his struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder.

"Sharing behind-the-scenes anecdotes, some hilarious, others brutal, life on set of Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins; and what it’s really like when you come face-to-face with notorious killers, drug cartels, Mexican warlords and hitmen in Inside the Real Narcos."

Life At the Limit is a very honest account of a long and difficult journey, but it promises to be inspiring, entertaining, funny and moving in equal measure."
