Your next adventure might be on hold for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start putting plans in place for you next big two (or three) wheeled trip. If you’re looking for inspiration and advice, there’s only one place to be this weekend; sprawled out and tuned in to The The Armchair Adventure Festival.
Kicking off tomorrow night, the first ever virtual adventure festival promises to bring together some of most inspiring and interesting adventure talks from around the world straight to your armchair. With talks from adventurers, panel discussions, workshops and film screenings (courtesy of Austin Vince and Louis Pryce’s Adventure Travel Film Festival), we know where we’ll be this weekend.
To get involved, all you’ve got to do is visit the website and sign up using the entry form. Then you’ll be sent an email which will allow you to access the stream.
Best of all, The Armchair Adventure Festival is completely FREE. The team behind the event recognise that money might be tight so instead of charging, it’s asking those that can afford it, to make a donation to the NHS Charities Together fund to help the fight against COVID-19.
