News - update on all things Alpkit

Join us for an Easter Eggstravaganza

By Talyn Williams

Pop into one of our stores over Easter weekend for some serious shenanigans.

That’s right folks, it’s Easter again already. Chocolate eggs are taking over the universe once more and we’re inviting the Easter Bunny into our Hathersage and Ambleside stores to drop off some tasty treats. But, you’ll have to hunt around the stores to find them!

To celebrate a long weekend of going nice places, doing good things and eating chocolate eggs (lots of chocolate eggs), we thought we’d play host to a few extra activities over the Easter weekend to help anyone wanting to build on their adventure skills for the year ahead.

No matter what your activity of choice, be it running, riding, paddling or climbing, there’ll be someone around to talk to about how to hone in on your skills and smash your season targets. Not only will there be drop-in sessions, workshops and plenty of adventure advice on hand, but we’ll also have special guest speakers and Alpkit movie nights to further inspire your adventurous spirits.

Oh yeah, and if all that isn’t enough, we’ll have free tea, coffee and cake (yes, free cake!) to help fuel you through a weekend of activities. Here’s a little more info so you know what’s going on and where:
