Ben Fogle, commented: “I like to think of myself as a journeyman, exploring new places, meeting people, explore new communities and getting to the bottom of why people choose to live how they do . I feel really lucky that I have been able to reengage with adventures in the UK recently, this beautiful adventure playground that we have on our own doorstep.” Hear more from Ben on Saturday 27 March at 6pm.

Visitors will have access to some of the top brands in the industry including Ultra X, Salomon, Cicerone, Fulfil Nutrition, Yamatune, Splashmaps, dryRobe, Cycle England, Arnicare, Andorra Travel Service, Biolite, Jetboil, Nikwax, Petzl, Cabanon Tents, Water to Go, Pulseroll, Jack Wolfskin, Osprey, The Wave and Linqsport.
