Just who are those mysterious strangers that have appeared in Cromford? How can the genteel ladies of the town embroider bookmarks, in safety, any more? Camping Out is delighted to welcome back the talented thespians of 'Pantaloon Party' for side-splitting hot crumpet, extreme needlework and bickering banter - from the bitches in bonnets!

This year the first night of Camping Out falls on the Summer Solstice and there will be a short celebration on Thursday evening followed by a campfire. La Fiesta open their kitchens on Thursday evening so if you don't feel like cooking you can buy their yummy food. All dietary needs catered for.

Friday Morning starts with a walk. We are delighted to have secured Gaynor Rees to lead a fully guided Camping Out walk on Friday 22nd June. So all you walkers out there make sure you're at Bales Ash ready with your boots on - Gaynor's quick wit and guiding experience is not to be missed! 

If you would rather not walk join the workshop programme. There will be yoga and arts based workshops to engage with during the day or just enjoy the chill out space and a chat. During the weekend we have a fabulous range of workshops including Decorating Masks,  Decorating hats,  Wool felting, Soap and bath salt making,  Candle making,  Knit a tit and have a chat,  Feminism talk and discussion,  Creative writing,  Giant bunting making and Paint a face on a spoon. There will also be various community art projects running over the  weekend and other workshops to be confirmed.
