Led by our team of top instructors (with backgrounds ranging from mountain rescue to expedition work), the workshops require no prior medical knowledge and are open to anyone with an interest in the outdoors.
Each day will include five one hour workshops (workshop list TBC), which will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
Workshops will run between 9.30am-5.30pm each day (in and around Hathersage, Peak District), with registration taking place between 8.30-9.30am on both Saturday and Sunday (next to the Outside car park).
BBQ, beer and Mick Fowler
A BBQ and beer will be provided on Saturday evening (free to all attendees but donations welcome). This is your chance to chill out, ask any questions and discuss the day's activities.
After food, we'll be entertained by BMC Patron and Himalayan legend Mick Fowler.
