The Broads Outdoors Festival programme is here!

The official Broads Outdoors Festival programme has been launched. The brochure showcases over 80 events which span from 28 April to 13 May.

As well as containing full details for every experience taking place as part of the festival, it features upcoming events such as Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios, and articles focusing on a selection of Broads National Park news such as the Broads Authority’s volunteering opportunities and the newly launched Wild Watch Camera Scheme.

Now in its eighth year, this popular Broads National Park publication features a wide selection of local businesses and organisations, all offering events as varied as kayak safaris, nature walks and broad-side steam train trips.

When the Broads Outdoors Festival was first launched in 2010 it was created with two major aims. The first was to encourage new visitors into the National Park so that they would discover all of the amazing things which the Broads has to offer. The second was to help remind local people of the variety of activities on their doorstep.  This year will be no exception, with a wide-ranging selection of events which are sure to have something for everybody.

Broads Authority Chairman Jacquie Burgess said of the festival,

“Once again, we have been overwhelmed by the sheer number and variety of events being staged by many partners and organisations keen to showcase all that is best about the Broads. As I read through the list of events, it struck me that there was a host of opportunities for me to revisit places that have become my own personal favourites within the Broads and I was reminded of some that I have yet to visit, despite living and working in Norfolk for so many years. When we are so busy it is easy to forget about some of the amazing views, buildings and events that are here on our doorstep. And that is what the Broads Outdoors Festival is all about.”

Look out for your copy of the Broads Outdoors Festival programme within the Eastern Daily Press on the 17 April and at Broads National Park visitor centres along with other local outlets.
