It's simple, you pre-book some activities to "have a go" at or just turn up on the day and visit the different areas and put your name down for sessions and just join in. There's also plenty of entertainment too, with yummy food to eat and chill out areas with music, massage and giant screens with live sport and entertainment. Click on the About page to find out more.
All the activities are FREE and all you have to pay for is anything you choose to buy from our Exhibitors or something to eat!
Yes, you certainly can. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Yes, you certainly can. Just set up profiles for the people in your group and you can book their activities as well.
You can pre-book up to 4 activities per person per day (unless you bought an early bird ticket before May 15th, you can therefore pre-book 8 per person per day of attendance). You will also be able to book many more on the weekend itself, subject to availability. Pre-booking will close at 8pm on THURSDAY JUNE 22nd, 2017.
Most are 45 minutes long (taster sessions) but please see our Timetable for full information.
Please see our Timetable which will be gradually updated with the full list of providers for each session. Some are National Governing Bodies; some are local clubs or businesses. We are truly grateful to them all for all their support.
Please go back to the ‘Visitors Profile’ page on your account. Then click on ‘Show Activities’ and you will see a box to ‘Cancel’ those activities on the far-right hand side. Click those boxes and then you can go back to the booking section to book others instead.
