All the information (accommodation, crags, venues) you could ever want about the event is on the Festival Website
Locals will be on hand to offer advice and full colour topos for the visitor, as well as providing a free breakfast of bacon/egg butties and endless brews. All in all this is the friendliest festival around, and the company is generally agreed to be welcoming, enthusiastic and slightly mad (in a good way).
Events kick off on the Friday night with a cosy gathering at The Countryman, and things rapidly escalate from there on in. The weather has been ordered well in advance and is predicted to be excellent.
