Something For The Weekend #11


We're back again to dabble into the wonderful world of the weekend. Last week we featured the 'Ring Of Steall' route in The Mamores and Poker in the Park in Hannover Square and like every week we've got two fresh ideas today!

Up first we've got a 'Sunset and Night Walk'. The walk see's you ascend to the highest point in the Peak District to view the sunset and take on the stunning surrounding views, all while sipping an inviting cup of hot chocolate.

After taking in the sunset it's off for the remainder of the night walk. There will be two possible routes, the first following the Pennine Way down Jacob's Ladder or circling around the southern edge, passing Crowden Clough to Grinslow Knoll. The plan is to arrive back at Edale between 11pm and 12pm. It's only £20 per person and a kit list is provided on booking your place. Suffice to say a headtorch would come in handy!

If you fancy staying the night in the area there's B & B's and camping available around Edale itself.

Not into that? Try this...

If your based in the south of the country and your looking for something a bit closer to home, the Thames Festival 2011 is well worth getting yourself down to! It's taking place between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge this weekend and there's plenty going on. Theres food and drink in abundance at the Thames Feast, you can touch up on your dancing skills with Al Fresco Tango and you can even brush up on your photography!

Probably the best thing about the whole festival is that all the events are entirely free! So you can get down and enjoy yourself, take in the entertainment and not have to blow an exceedingly large hole in your wallet at the same time.

If your not convinced, check out some of the photo's from previous Thames Festivals. There really is something for everyone! Here's the fireworks from last year's event...

This weeks product of the week, ensuring you can see every step in front of you while taking in the sunset in The Peaks, the Petzl Zipka 2 Head Torch.
