How to be inspired: come along to the BMC Hill Walking Symposium 2020 to explore and discuss your passions. We’ll be looking to build on the vibrant vision created at the hugely successful premiere of the event in 2018 in the Peak District, but this time we’ll be heading to Ambleside in the stunning Lake District.
Passion, freedom, adventure, environment and community. These were key tenets of the vision that emerged when 50 people converged in Castleton in 2018 for the first ever BMC Hill Walking Symposium through a combination of thought-provoking workshops along with plenty of what everyone loves – hill walking! We’re also excited to announce that our special guest speaker for Saturday night will be TV presenter and writer of the outdoors: BMC hill walking ambassador Mary-Ann Ochota.
We are very grateful to be teaming up with the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) who will very kindly host the event for us at their hostel in Ambleside right next to Lake Windermere and some spectacular hills and mountains – it’s the ideal location to base ourselves for this unmissable event. Of course, being in the beautiful scenery of the Lake District, there will be plenty of hill walking taking place again this time, along with workshops and open discussions to explore the big issues with like-minded people.
The 2020 symposium will take place from Friday 13 until Sunday 15 March. BMC members can take part for £70 per person and non-members for £85, which includes a one-year membership to the BMC. The price covers two nights’ accommodation at the YHA, two breakfasts and evening meals. Bookings will be open within the next few weeks making for the ideal Christmas present and will be taken on a first come first serve basis.
Further information regarding the event will be announced in the coming weeks. This really is the unmissable event of the year for passionate hill walkers – we look forward to seeing you there!
