On Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September 2015 over 100 YHA hostels will be throwing their doors open to welcome one and all on YHA Day.
We've planned a variety of exciting events at our regional flagship Youth Hostels to showcase the awesome activities available in several areas. As this is the third year running you can expect all the best bits from our previous YHA Days including BBQs, live music, delicious cakes and summer fetes.
We've also got nine pop-up charity shops selling treasures from our lost property with all proceeds going to Breaks for Kids. Old socks and thread bare tops this ain't - we've roped in local fashion design students, tapped into the upcycling trend and gratefully received goods from guests who'd run out of suitcase space. Prepare to bargain hunt and grab a preloved garment or two.
YHA Day is our chance to say thanks - both to local communities and to all our supporters. There'll be a warm welcome offered everywhere and an open invitation to explore many of our remarkable hostel buildings and their grounds.
Pick up a bargain when you rummage through some of YHA's most prestigious lost property in our Pop-Up Charity Shops - you won't believe what people leave behind!
Our biggest events will showcase the very best of what YHA and each tourist region has to offer with these family fun days.
