The line-up for the brand new Buxton Adventure Festival is now confirmed and there promises to be two days packed with great speakers from the world of adventure, travel & sport.
Festival Director Matt Heason did a double take watching the Olympics opening ceremony when he realised the Queen's skydiving stunt double was none other than Saturday night speaker Gary Connery. And we're really excited that World Champion downhill mountain biker Danny Hart will be interviewed by ITV Cycle Show presenter Anna Glowinski on Sunday night.
Following the sell-out success of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival Young Adventurers' screenings there will be two special family-friendly sessions at BAF on Saturday and Sunday mornings with trials biker Danny Butler and 2012 wheelchair basketballer Maddie Thompson. Good luck to Maddie and the team for the Paralympic Games.
The University of Derby Buxton campus is supporting the festival on a three year sponsorship deal so listen out for the announcment of children and family activities shortly.
