Coun Adam Grist, portfolio holder for market towns and the rural economy at ELDC, said: “It is amazing that the Outdoor Festival has been able to return for a third year, with another varied and jam-packed schedule for people to explore and enjoy.

“The events provide residents and visitors alike with the opportunity to learn more about this stunning landscape that make up such a large part of our district and county, and to sample the offers of some of our fantastic local businesses and food and drink providers.

“We have another exciting schedule organised, and I hope that people will come along and enjoy some of the activities and events, perhaps discover some new skills and hobbies, and certainly take in the incredible surroundings of the Wolds.”

One of the highlights of the festival will be an event taking place on Sunday May 12 at Stourton Woods, which offers a fun day out and an opportunity for people to get a taste of some of the activities that will be available across the festival, including gliding, archery, axe throwing, guided walks, mountain biking, farm safaris, bushcraft, and more.

Some events will require booking in advance, so it is recommended to do so as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Up to date details of the events and activities, along with booking forms, can be found at
