The Alpkit Big Shakeout outdoor festival
Over the weekend of 28th - 30th September we are your basecamp for a weekend of adventure and entertainment in the Peak District. The format is simple, be active during the day and be entertained in the evening. If you have a taste for adventure, want to be inspired and try something new the Big Shakeout is for you. It's a not-for-profit festival with all proceeds donated to the Alpkit Foundation.
Back for 2018 is the Big Shakeout Talks programme: tales of adventure, expedition, and derring-do with award-winning swashbucklers and Alpkiteers. What campfire is complete without stories to share round it? Some of our favourite adventurers and Alpkiteers are generously giving up their time to join us at Big Shakeout tent, share and discuss their latest exploits, and answer an burning questions we have about their adventures.
The Big Shakeout elves are busy working on the Speaker programme for now, watch this space for a taster of what's to come!
FOOD & DRINK
Good food and drink are worth savouring, enjoying, and sharing... (like the best adventures!) Check out what's on the menu at the Big Shakeout 2018.
As much as we love creating delicious culinary concoctions on our camping stoves, sometimes it's nice to give your stove the day off, hang up your rucksack and have a hearty hot meal made for you (preferably with a nice beer too!).
Free Tea and Coffee
At registration, we'll equip you with a Big Shakeout Mug that you can use to make the most of free tea and coffee all weekend. Hurrah for that!
