Farmers Market at The Outdoors Show

It seems to be the season for lots of fun events happening in London, which is great if you live in and around London or maybe it's just that there are always lots of things going on in London!

One of these events is The Outdoors Show Even if you are not an outdoors person, if you are visiting my blog, the chances are you will be interested in the Farmers Market where you can taste a range of local foods from small food producers. 

 I have TWO pairs of tickets to give away so two lucky readers will win one pair of tickets each. 

Here is what the organisers say about the show:

The UK's No.1 show for outdoor pursuits, The Outdoors Show, returns to ExCeL, London from 17 – 20 January 2013. Promising a great family day out, the show provides a fantastic opportunity to buy all the latest clothing and equipment at great prices, as well as offering FREE have-a-go attractions, special guest speakers and more.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the first successful ascent of Everest in 1953, The Outdoors Show will be hosting an exhibition, 60 Years on Everest. In conjunction with the Mountain Heritage Trust and the Royal Geographical Society, the exhibition will feature photographs, clothing and memorabilia documenting the key dates in the history of Everest, from 1953 through to the modern day - providing visitors with a fascinating insight into the amazing mountain.

The focus on Everest doesn’t end there. The Adventure Stage will be headlined by Everest legend Kenton Cool, one of the world’s leading alpine climbers with ten successful Everest ascents to his name, more than any other European climber.
TV adventurer Charley Boorman is confirmed to speak on the stage, as well as Children’s TV presenter, Helen Skelton. They’ll be joined by a host of other mountaineers and adventurers, all with fantastic stories to tell. All talks will be free of charge to visitors upon entry to the show.

New for the 2013 show is the Outdoor Photography Photobox. Featuring talks from top photographers including wildlife photographer Andy Rouse, BBC Human Planet photographer Timothy Allen, Planet Earth photographer Sue Flood, Julian Love and others. WEX Photographic, formerly known as Warehouse Express will have a large retail presence at the show making the event well worthy of a visit for photography enthusiasts, whether looking to buy some new photography equipment or looking to learn a thing or two from some of the world’s best photographers. There will also be numerous competition galleries displayed at the show featuring a fantastic range of photography.

Also new for the 2013 show is The Wild Britain Stage, in association with Ordnance Survey. Ordnance Survey will be back at the show for the first time since 2010 and will be bringing a host of navigation experts with them. The stage will also feature talks on the best walking spots, wildlife, equipment and more!

Thousands of visitors have experienced climbing at the show over the past 12 years and the Climbing Village at the 2013 Outdoors Show will offer a challenge for experienced climbers, and a great opportunity for people wanting to try climbing for the first time. There will be walls to suit all abilities and instructors will be on hand to help and offer advice on the best way to conquer the routes.

Maverick Slacklines will be returning to The Outdoors Show with a mix of competition slacklining, demos and have-a-go sessions. Slackilining is a test of balance and core fitness and what the Maverick guys can do is remarkable and thoroughly entertaining to watch.

Presented by PGL, the UK’s leading provider of school trips and children’s adventure holidays, the Careers Zone offers all the information needed to turn a passion for the outdoors into a career. The zone will feature a stage packed with speakers from all aspects of the outdoors industry, as well as an information area where visitors can talk with a wide range of professionals on a one to one level.

That’s not quite everything! The Outdoors Show will once again run alongside The London Bike Show, The Active Travel Show and the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show. With a ticket to The Outdoors Show allowing visitors access into all four shows, there will be lots more to see and do, helping to create an entertaining, affordable day out for all visitors.

If all this isn’t enough, the perfect way to top off a day at the show is with some great food and drink. The Farmers Market will offer visitors a delicious range of local foods perfect to fuel their next outdoor adventure.

Visitors can compliment the delicious food with some Beer or Wine Tasting, courtesy of Beer Boutique and Virgin Wines respectively in the Globe Taste Experience. Expert sommeliers will be on hand to talk visitors through the beers and wines from all over the world. Tickets for the tastings, which cost £10 per person, per session can be booked in advance through The Outdoors Show box office.

To win a pair of tickets to the Outdoor Show and Farmers Market please leave a comment telling me what you would most like to see at the Outdoors Show. 

Closing Date: Sunday 13th January at 8pm
Winners will be chosen by Random Number Generator, the tickets will await the winners at the door of the exhibition.

Tickets supplied by the organisers, Farmersgirl Kitchen will pass the names of the winners to the promoters and is not responsible for the experience of the winners at the Outdoor Show.

Would love to be at the talk by TV adventurer Charley Boorman, as I have watched all his 'long way' programmes with Ewan Mcgregor, and enjoyed them immensely.
