BORWICK HALL LGBT+ WEEKEND
We're excited to announce our first LGBT+ event which will be held at the impressive location of Borwick Hall in Lancashire! Borwick Hall is a beautiful Manor House nestled between the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The weekend includes accommodation for two nights, all activities and three meals (2x breakfasts, 1x lunch).

Arrive in the evening for a meet and greet.
Saturday - 30th November 2019:
Hike - A not-too-difficult hike up Arnside Knott in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Paddle to the Pub - canoe along the canal to the Longlands Inn. Have a drink and then paddle back!
Sunday - 1st December 2019:
Low Ropes Course - a 'Go Ape' style course but lower to the ground, including a water hazard.
Archery - some target practice allowing you to get in touch with your inner Robin Hood!
The weekend ends at lunchtime on Sunday, giving you enough time to travel home. If you would like a packed lunch on the Sunday to take with you, please let us know if advance.
The accommodation at Borwick Hall is bunkhouse style – a little bit like a youth hostel and in an amazing building and grounds! There are showers, toilets, a kitchen with tables and ‘hang-out’ area for socialising. Bedding and pillows are provided but please bring a towel with you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Attending alone - the vast majority of people attend by themselves and so everyone is in the same boat (almost literally when we paddle to the pub!).
Clothing or equipment - any specialist equipment for activities provided. If you have walking boots and/or an outdoor jacket then please bring them, otherwise a pair of trainers and a coat will be just fine.
Experience - you do not need prior experience for the activities - most people won't have done the activities before and the instructors and guides will help everyone through.
LGBT - LGBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
