A great CPD opportunity for outdoor professionals, teachers, youth workers or anyone with an interest in the outdoors. Celebrating 11 years in 2017


The Festival takes place at Hollowford providing a wide mix of workshops and informal networking that will give you plenty of new ideas both conceptual and practical.

Only £110pp for the whole weekend - includes 4 workshops, 2 nights accommodation (shared single-sex en-suite rooms) and meals from Saturday breakfast through to Sunday lunch.   Evening meal on Friday is available (if booked in advance) served between 7.30pm and 8.30pm.  

We have a small number of Day tickets available if you are unable to join us for the whole weekend. 

By attending this time you are also supporting our Bursary Fund as the cost includes a £10 per day contribution.

ALL previous festivals have been over subscribed so expect this one to sell out too. Please book early to avoid disappointment. There'll be many of the regulars as well as new providers.

Further information on our workshops will be updated on this website in the coming weeks with details of how to book the workshops being forwarded to you in January so you can select which ones you would like to visit.
