The Outdoor Leisure Show 2011, at the NEC Birmingham on 25-27 February, will give you a great chance to touch, feel and compare our range of equipment as we will have plenty of goodies on display and for sale. This will include down sleeping bags, drybags, bivvy bags, tarps, camping accessories, bouldering pads, t-shirts and the full range of sleeping mats. Also as part of our CoLab development process we will be displaying pre-production samples of our three new tents, giving you the chance to get a sneak preview before they arrive later in the year.
Alongside our retail space we will have our Alpkid's on the Blocs climbing wall, giving mini mountaineers the chance to have a go and learn about bouldering. Run in sessions, this fun competition also gets the parents involved to teach them how to climb smoothly and safely together.
About the show: Some people will know this as the Boat and Caravan Show, however this year it has a whole outdoors section of its own including talks, demonstrations and attractions from across the outdoor leisure spectrum.
If you are new to the great outdoors, the leading clubs, associations and media will also be on hand to help get you started.
Tickets are available online and include parking and free entry to the Boat & Caravan Show (Halls 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and NEC Pavilion Halls). www.outdoorleisureshow.com
