Millican HQProfessor of Adventure
- Retail Partner Competition

Meet Millican Dalton, the self-proclaimed ‘Professor of Adventure’. In the early 1900s, his curious spirit inspired him to swap his conventional life in London for a life of adventure in the Lake District, living in a cave in the Borrowdale Valley.

It was in his footsteps that we found our own way to the Lake District - the place where we started creating our bags, based on Millican Dalton’s own principles of simplicity.

Our short stop-motion film follows the Professor on an adventure through our HQ in Keswick.

The #ProfessorOfAdventure Competition.

You can use your Professor of Adventure display kit to create a stop-motion movie of Millican exploring your own store/city, for a chance to win a Lake District Adventure Pack, full of local Lake District goodness to share with all your store-team.

How to Enter:

We invite you to make a 60-second stop-frame animation using your POS kit. Download one of these easy-to-use Stop-Motion apps on to your mobile phone, to help you create a short film that shows Millican Dalton exploring your own store or city.
