The festival returns to Mill Hill School in 200 acres of wooded parkland on the outskirts of London, where attendees can pitch their tents or park their caravans or campervans. Outdoor workshops, photography courses, walks, foraging, bushcraft and building a zip wire all take place on-site with ‘starlight screenings’ on the Friday and Saturday night (British weather permitting).
The programme also includes live bands, Ask The Experts’ panels, outdoor sessions such as Campfire Cooking and Yoga for Travellers, paddling expeditions, how to film your adventure, travel writing, and using drones and GoPros in filmmaking.
Festival founders, Lois Pryce and Austin Vince are independent travel veterans, with a catalogue of books and films between them. Austin is one of the world’s leading adventure motorcyclists and has made several TV shows about his travels, while Lois Pryce’s books about her solo motorcycle journeys across Africa, the Americas and Iran have been published worldwide.
