School of Adventure

Big Shakeout 2018

It wouldnt be the big Shakeout without the School of Adventure, subsidised by the Alpkit Foundation to help you go nice places and try new things.

School of Adventure (SofA) is one of our favourite parts of the Big Shakeout weekend.

Hang on, what’s SofA?

Every year we put on over 1200 SofA course to help you festival-goers go nice places and try new things.

All courses are delivered by qualified instructors from Thornbridge Outdoors, the Alpkit team, or other local and not-so-local organisations.
