Alpkit’s Big Shakeout is back again for another year, bringing together as many aspects of the outdoors as possible – walking, trekking, climbing, biking, music fun and games (and plenty of food).

The Big Shakeout is happening on the 12th to 14th October at Thornbridge Outdoors in Great Longstone in the Peak District.

As per last year, there’s a full series of events and activities going on, from MTB skills tuition for kids, lectures from adventurous people, circus skills, and local walks and rides.

Alpkit are also running their School of Adventure courses, delving a little deeper into a range of outdoor skills, such as rope safety and management, MTB photography, bushcraft and whitewater kayaking.

If all that adventure tires you out, there’s plenty of opportunities to grab food, beer and live music too.

The Big Shakeout is being run by Alpkit in association with Thornbridge Outdoors and River Legacy.

You can buy your weekend pass here – 45 for adults, 20 for under 16s and free for the under 3s.
