By Izzy Bolger | 31, Aug, 2012
If you haven’t already ordered your weekend ticket then do it soon, you don’t want to miss out on all the free workshops plus great music we’ve got planned! Here are just a few things to wet your appetite...literally!
Once you’ve got your camp set up and recovered from the drive to Thornbridge you’ll be ready to kick back. After successfully filling everyone with beer last year, River Legacy will be joining us again - don’t worry they’ve promised not to run out this time! On Friday night you can grab a beer and burger (plus vegetarian alternative) for just £5, there will also be some pieminister sausage rolls, which we’re told are very yummy. There will be live music through the weekend including resident guitarist Matthew Moore (Loughborough) with his quick improvisation skills and unique covers to get things started in the evening along with a few other surprises.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Rude Health are going to be dishing out their hot organic porridge - nom nom! There will also be the option of a hot breakfast provided by River Legacy on both Saturday and Sunday morning. If you’re not already signed up to a course for Saturday or Sunday, then make sure you check out the School of Adventure (SofA) online, as courses are filling up quickly. However if you’re just using the BSO as a base camp for other activities then why not check out the free workshops that will be available, we’ve got; bushcraft skills, kids arts and crafts, circus skills, archery and much more - See what is happening.
Your weekend ticket also includes the Saturday evening meal and you can choose from 4 or 5 pieminister pies, which will all be served with mash, gravy and peas! For all the people that suffered from late night munchies last year, River Legacy will be providing hot food and snacks. This year sees the return of Rik Warren (he was the cool guy who played round the campfire) and he’s bringing a drummer along too. In the yurt you will find the Adventurists with their maps, larger than life personalities, film and lecture programme. Pop your head in to find out more about the Rickshaw Run, Mongol Derby and other improbable challenges.
So there you have it a taster of what’s to come at this year’s BSO. We’ll be confirming more acts and free workshops leading up to the weekend!
