Some of the best days out in the Springtime months

 

The weather has started to turn and with the nights now stretching out for even longer we can feel the arrival of Spring in the air! With the seasons changing we can come out of a long winter hibernation and begin to enjoy the Great Outdoors in our favourite season.

Spring is a busy time for the staff here at Nordic Outdoor and our calendar is crammed full of great events that we can’t wait for. What we love most about events like these is the opportunity to try your hand at some brand-new activities, and maybe pick up a new hobby.

Just in case any of you fancy coming along, we’ve picked out some of the events we’re particularly excited about below.

 


  

 

Woodland Fire & Feast: 28th April

The culinary world meets Bushcraft at this special event in the stunning surroundings of Meiklerig Wood in East Lothian. Renowned chef and foraging expert Alison Henderson takes you on a day of learning, cooking and feasting. Teaming up with Dave Crosbie of Tree-ditions you will be taken on a hands-on day where you learn how to cook outdoors – the skills of building and maintaining a fire, smoking, roasting, baking in salt and how to cook in an earth oven.

This is the second in a series of outdoor foraging and cooking events which will be led by Alison and after the success of last months Spring Woodland Forage and Food we can’t wait to see what is in store for the Fire & Feast afternoon.

Keswick Mountain Festival: 17th – 19th May

Fjällräven will be sponsoring this years Keswick Mountain Festival and with it being held just down the road from our very own Nordic Outdoor Keswick store we know this is going to be a great weekend.

With Don Gladstone and Alan Hinkes OBE attending there is also the new Keswick 3 Peaks Challenge with Fjällräven and the brand will also be sponsoring a screening of the film ‘Edie’ at the Alhambra cinema followed by a Q&A. 

Alongside the Fjällräven events Nordic Outdoor will also be the centre of this years Ruffwear Passpawt initiative. Dog owners can collect a Passpawt for their four-legged friend and begin the Keswick walking trail with the chance to win some Ruffwear goodies!

 


The Bushcraft Show 2019: 25th – 27th May

The Bushcraft show is undoubtedly the most important event in the Nordic Outdoor calendar every year. The Bushcraft Show was one of our starting points as a company, so the annual pilgrimage to Birmingham for the event is one our head office staff are very fond of.

We love getting the opportunity to meet fellow outdoor enthusiasts and link up with our customers. Everything about the Bushcraft Show fits the Nordic Outdoor ethos. With vendors from around the country it’s a great opportunity to get out and learn new skills and try new things.

For the first time the show will be sponsored by our friends at Fjällräven who will be bringing along their UK Brand ambassador and outdoor guru, Alan Hinkes OBE, who will be delivering talks on the main stage.

Don Gladstone, the brands resident waxing expert will also be at the show, running demos on how to wax your G-1000 clothing and equipment to maximise its performance and durability.

We invite everyone to come and say hello! We will have set up some of our favourite Tentipi’s and will be showcasing some of the best new products we have to offer for outdoor activities and Bushcrafting.
