Fire by Friction with Jonny Pickett

Fire by Friction with Jonny Pickett


Here we are again. The RV has come around and yet again we will be joined by faces both fresh and familiar.
We would like people to start booking as soon as possible. We are also asking that people who would like to run an event or workshop to book a place as soon as possible. This will allow people then to book a slot with relevant event / workshop holders.
This year we intend on including more competition based activities like The Bowdrill competition, double and single bit axe throwing competitions and possibly an atl atl or slingshot range (not a catapult). We are already speaking to reliable exhibitors, new and old, to provide activities for all who attend. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you over the year and hope to see you again this Easter from the Midday of the 14th of April (Good Friday) through to the Monday the 17th at Midday (Bank Holiday Monday)
Costs as with previous years we have tried to keep down with adults costing £15 per night and children costing £10 per night. Day Tickets will cost £10 per adult and £7.50 per child
