If you are craving Adventure Content during the Level 4 lockdown check out this UK online event.

The date is April 25th UK time so I’m not exactly sure what time in NZ it will be but it will be on the evening of the 24th NZ time.

You do need to register for this event on the https://armchairadventurefestival.com/ website.

Welcome – Get ready to sit back and adventure!

The Armchair Adventure Festival is the first ever virtual adventure festival. On the 25th of April, we will be bringing the most inspiring and interesting adventure talks from around the world straight to your armchair. With talks from top adventurers, panel discussions and workshops on all kinds of adventurous topics and some of the most exciting adventure films out there, it will be an event to remember. All you have to do to watch is sign up using the form below and then keep an eye on your emails.

The Armchair Adventure Festival is completely free. We recognise that at such a difficult time money can be tight so there is no fee to attend. All we ask is that, if you can, please make a voluntary donation to the NHS Charities Together fund to aid the fight against COVID-19.

    If you missed the Armchair Adventure Festival over the weekend you can re watch the videos on Youtube. I tuned in for several hours of the first 2 days and the presenters were fantastic but as it was overnight NZ time I didn’t see all of it.

    If you want some inspiration watch these!
