This is Colin, I've found out that the Dent festival sorry to say is cancelled for this year due to I believe an unfortunate death of a well known organiser.

Although this has happened I'm willing and still going to go to support the village plus there will be some musicians doing small gigs. I feel this is only right as we've been going there for so many years and feel sorry again that such a great occasion and venue is not happening and I'll convey all our thoughts to those concerned.

Group walks will be arranged for during the day but the festival also offers many activities that you may like to try. On both Friday and Saturday evening there is live music at the festival park where the stage, overlooking Derwent Water and surrounding fells, must have the best backdrop of any venue in the country!

For further details and costs for the festival, please see www.keswickmountainfestival.co.uk

Please text Jill Brogden 07940 415 695 to book on for the weekend and we will keep you up to date with any group activities. Please book your own accommodation.

3 Valleys Beer Festival

XXALERTZZ

Date: Sat. 2nd June
Time: XXTIMENOTEZZ

Details: This is back for another year, with 13 pubs taking part, providing a great choice of beers, ciders, foods, atmosphere and music, all linked by a special free bus service running from Dronfield station in three continuous loops (running from midday to 9.00pm) hop on and off at whichever pub you want to visit next and new this year there will also be festival buses from Halfway Park & Ride site where the 120 bus and Blue route tram terminate

3 Valleys sees a whole raft of pubs, clubs and breweries putting on small beer festivals on the same day and fund a free bus service linking all the venues with Dronfield rail station. Entry to all the venues is also free of charge so it is a great value day out featuring beer, cider, food, live music and scenery.

New venues confirmed for this year include Fuggle Bunny Brewhouse and the Butchers Arms at Marsh Lane with returning favourites including the Miners Arms at Hundall, Hyde Park Inn at Hill Top, the Jolly Farmer and Miners Arms in Dronfield Woodhouse whilst in Dronfield itself the Dronfield Arms, Green Dragon, Manor House Hotel, Blue Stoops and Pioneer Club are all back again for 2018. It is expected there will be a few more venues still to be announced.

One cluster of venues that have proved very busy in the last few years are those on Dronfield High Street – Blue Stoops, Manor House and Green Dragon – all offering outside bars, music and street food stalls – so new this year will be a road closure to make it easier and safer to walk between these venues and provide more space to eat and drink outside! As a result the festival buses will serve these venues using the stop in the Civic Centre.

There are trains coming from Sheffield station to Dronfield on the Northern Trains (the train is the Leeds to Nottingham) from 11.05 am till late, but if you would like to meet up for the 15 minute journey, get in touch with Tracey, cost is £4.60 single or if you wish to book the return trip it’s £4.50 for an off-peak day return ticket which you can pay for at the station on the day or online beforehand.

Jim Perrin: one of Britain's finest outdoor essayist" according to Robert Macfarlane. He is Manchester-born, radically left-wing, a prolific author, the Guardian country diarist for Wales, and a TGO columnist. In earlier years he was one of Britain's leading rock-climbers. A close friend of Benny Rothman, he has had a passion for the Peakland moors since his early teens.

Keith Warrender: a leading expert on the Trespass and has been giving talks on the Kinder Trespass for nearly forty years. He writes and publishes books about the local history of Manchester, Cheshire and the Peak District, and published Benny Rothman's account of the Trespass.

Kate Ashbrook is a vice-president of the Ramblers, general secretary of the Open Spaces Society, vice-chair of the Campaign for National Parks and patron of the Walkers Are Welcome Towns Network.  She was in the vanguard of the campaign for greater access to open country in England and Wales, and she continues to champion people’s rights to enjoy paths and open spaces in town and country

"A Norwegian story"

Once upon a time there were three Billy Goats Gruff; Little Billy Goat, Middle Sized Billy Goat and Great Big Billy Goat, who lived in a field in a green valley. They loved to eat sweet grass, but sadly their field was now brown and barren because they were greedy goats and they’d eaten every last blade of grass. But they were still hungry. In the distance they could see a field that was full of lush sweet scrummy grass, but alas there was only one way to get to it - over a rickety bridge over a stream. But under the bridge lived a terrifically terrifying terrible troll called Trevor - he was always hungry too. And there was nothing he liked better than to eat a nice juicy Billy Goat. (Includes a surprise celebrity!)

Flamborough Head to Bampton Cliffs and back (about 8 miles if returning the same way or 11 miles if returning via Flamborough and South Landing - it should take about 4 - 5 hours.

Date: 23rd - 25th June 2017

Details: We are off to the beautiful village of Dent in the Yorkshire Dales for their annual free festival.

More than 25 artists will perform on our main stage marquee, and new to this year will be the open mic stage located in our undercover seating area.

In Dent village you'll find two lovely pubs, the Sun Inn and the George & Dragon, within very close walking/staggering distance in Dent, where music of all varieties will ring out throughout the day and (probably long) into the night.

Add to that the street performers in the cobbled streets - clog and traditional dancing and other individual and group musicians (sometimes impromptu) - and you'll have a totally unforgettable experience.

And... if you haven't had enough after all of the organised activities have finished, potter along to one of the two nearby campsites - more than likely you'll come across a group of musicians who just can't bear to quit and go to bed and you'll be treated to some mellow, acoustic tunes to prepare you for slumber.

We have booked to stay at High Laning Campsite. www.highlaning.com

The cost is £22.50 per night for the 2 nights camping - two people and a car. Wristbands usually £5 for cheaper beer, and the music is free.

Please email Colin Percival to book: colina1957@gmail.com or call him on 07505 936025.

If you like your accommodation to be a little more luxurious you are welcome to go ahead and book yourselves in and join us for the fun.

Seaside Picnic and Walk at Spurn Point

XXALERTZZ

Date: 15th August Day Trip
Time: Leaving Sheffield around 9am

Details: *** See full details on Walks Page ***
A sociable walk to the end of Spurn point & back, along track, sand dunes and beach. The road has been washed away in one point and surfaces can be bumpy. There will not be many migrating birds in August but lots to see with views up the estuary and out to the North Sea. Lots of shipping to watch. The shipping lane is very close to the end of the point which means the big container ships come close in. The only place where the RNLI has a full time paid life boat pilot. Also the coast guard station is at the end of the point. If we are lucky we will see seals.

Kilnsea Car Park is in a pleasant location, therefore, it would be good to spend some casual social time there at the end of the walk before going to the Crown & Anchor. Bring camping chairs & sun tan lotion.

See the associated walk for more details and how to sign up and to arrange car sharing etc.

Talk on WALKING, TREKKING AND SCRAMBLING IN THE SIERRA NEVADA by Mike and Jane

XXALERTZZ

Date: Wednesday 5 March 2014
Time: 8:00 pm

Details: The Sierra Nevada is Spain's largest national park; at its centre is Mulhacen, the highest mountain in mainland Spain. There are great opportunities for walking and mountaineering - from short strolls through terraced valleys to multi-day treks traversing much of the 3000m peaks. The area has interesting wildlife, archaeology and architecture having been influenced by Berbers from North Africa for hundreds of years.

The talk will touch on all of these whilst describing some of Mike and Jane's walking and mountaineering adventures. Mike and Jane run Mountain House Holidays, Peak Navigation Courses and Sierra Nevada Guides. The talk wil be held at Rutland Arms Pub (Upstairs), 86 Brown Street, SHEFFIELD S1 2BS. Admission Free of Charge, please text 0779 5203867 to confirm attendance and avoid disappointment. (30 seats only)
