The Great Outdoors Festival
6th- 8th August 2021
Who's fed up with being in Lockdown?
Well The Great Outdoors Festival is the ideal opportunity to socialise, learn, shop, camp and celebrate for at least one weekend this year.
It is the first year of the event and has been in the planning for quite some time but, for obvious reasons, other things got in the way. At The Bushcraft Store we are keen on doing what we can to celebrate the great outdoors so it was an easy and natural decision to sponsor the event.
There will be all sorts of activities going on:
At this festival, there will be an amazing opportunity for everyone from every walk of life to learn something new.
There will be a host of activities running daily throughout the whole event covering everything from Bushcraft, Primitive Skills, Navigation, First Aid, Foraging, Axe Throwing, Archery, Air rifle shooting, Green woodworking, Expedition skills, Blacksmithing, Leatherwork, Basketry, Carving classes and much more.
They have gathered outdoor specialists and some of the very best craftspeople from around the world to come and join together all in one place to share with you their passion and the skills of their trade.
There will be sit in workshops running on the stands, as well as specific skill classes where you can book onto prior to the festival to secure your place in a woodland classroom environment.
Throughout the festival, there will be talks and presentations as well as Q&A sessions with many survival experts and TV show personalities, here you will be able to listen to their tales of travel around the world and learn about the experiences they have had on their journeys and time spent outdoors, and get the opportunity to meet them in person.
Of course, we will be there with some of the best kit on the market and we will be focusing on brands such as TBS Knives, TBS Outdoor Gear, TBS Axes, Helikon Tex, Fjallraven, Mora Knives, Folding Firebox, Zebra, Flexcut and more.
The Festival will have a dedicated area where you can get yourself lost exploring all the latest and best equipment to journey or camping trip more comfortable. Not only will there be leading brands and equipment producers there, but there will be product and brand designers and ambassadors there to demonstrate and answer any questions you have to help you
