Base Camp Festival is an annual celebration of all things adventurous, organised by adventurers for adventurous people! A spin-off of the hugely successful Explorers Connect – the largest adventure hub in Britain – Base Camp Festival is the brainchild of expedition leader, Guinness World Record holder and adventure film director Belinda Kirk.
Highlights include: Slacklining with brothers daredevil Finn McCann and TV presenter Niall McCann; Adventure writing workshop with big wall climbing legend Andy Kirkpatric; Filmmaking workshop with extreme director/cameraman Phil Coates; Kayaking with record breaking adventure Sarah Outen; Bug hunting with TV zoologist George McGavin; Talks by polar explorer Paula Reid, and host, expedition leader and record breaker Belinda Kirk.
Set in the wilds of the Peak District, festival goers can also get their adrenaline fix by trying their hands at a spot of river tubing, pack-rafting, climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, white-water rafting and kayaking, or enjoy the more sedate calls of the wild with a course on navigation, bushcraft, shelter building, fire-starting and camp cooking. Or you could just prop up the bar and dance the night away to live music.
Base Camp Festival brings professionals, celebrities and novices of the adventure community together for one truly unforgettable weekend.
