Some Great News

We'll be heading down to The Roundhouse, London on the 28th November to join in the celebration of the best festivals in the UK.
Last year we scooped the top award for 'Best Non Music Festival' so wish us luck!
The advent of the ‘boutique festival’ has created a huge paradigm shift in the festival market, incurring an increased demand for pop-up performances, mass participation games, eclectic cuisine, quirky installations and overall aesthetics. This award celebrates the most creative auxiliary initiative undertaken on this year’s festival circuit.

Festival visitors enjoy a 2-day run up to the highly anticipated crescendo of the event which happens on the third day. The Ride, attracted a pre-registered audience of 4,500 riders, the biggest to date. This is no ordinary ride! Participants must ride pre-1987 road bikes and be dressed to impress in matching era vintage apparel.
World famous in just its third year and nick named 'The World's Most Handsome Bike Ride' riders are drawn in from China, the USA, Australia, Europe and Japan to join in on The Great British Adventure.
Riders choose routes of 30,55 or 100 miles, which navigate the white roads, hills, trails of The Peak District and stop at the lesser known villages of the area at 'feast stops' for local beer, wine, food and vibe. Riders return to the Festival to a rapturous welcome home party.
