Based in Wooler, gateway to the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park, the festival will be held over the weekend of 11-13 July and will provide opportunities to climb, walk and socialise.
The festival gets going on Friday evening at the Angel Inn on Wooler High Street, with an initial get-together, a pub quiz and a talk by the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team.
Principal accommodation will be at the Highburn House Country Holiday Park, where camping will be free for BMC and MCofS members (don't forget your membership card as proof).
On Saturday evening we’ll be returning to the Angel Inn for food and drinks and a talk by BMC CEO Dave Turnbull entitled “From Bowden to Patagonia”. Additional entertainment will be provided by a local folk singer.
Whether you’re a local, regular visitor or a first-timer to “the County”, we look forward to seeing you at the festival.
