Ingleton outdoors festival returns for 2013

The Yorkshire village of Ingleton will again host the Overground Underground Festival in 2013, with dates set for the end of May. The event will run from the 25th to the 31st, and promises many family-friendly activities talks, exhibitions, guided walks and outdoor adventure activities celebrating the unique area.

One of the organisers, Jay Haigh, told the Westmoreland Gazette: "We can offer our ever-popular caving taster sessions for adults and children, a guided bat walk and dawn walk, mountain biking, climbing, archaeological walks and new for this year is a challenging Trail Race."

There will also be more sedate walks designed for those who like to take it a little easier and those with young families, while the kids will be kept entertained with all kinds of physical activities, such as walking, biking, swimming - even zorbing.

Mr Haigh also confirmed that one of the guests providing their unique insight will be renowned adventurer and author Andy Kirkpatrick, who takes over as guest speaker on Saturday May 25th.

The Yorkshire Dales attracts many thousands of visitors each year, as a great destination to enjoy walking, hiking, climbing and other outdoor activities. Ingleton is a popular base for tackling one of the region's most challenging peaks, Ingleborough.
