Well, we might be exaggerating a little, but it’s massive! If you are into any of the major outdoor activities then look forward to The Outdoors Show in January – and we’ve got 3 pairs of tickets to give away!
From 12 – 15 January the Excel in London hosts four separate shows all pooled together: The Outdoors Show, the London Bike Show, the Tullett Prebon London Boat Show and the Active Travel Show.
The Outdoors Show
The Outdoors Show has been running for 11 years. This year it’s host to the Finlandia Vodka Travel & Adventure Stage, where adventurers like shipwreck hunter David Mearns will be sharing their exploits, and there’s also as the best of the Banff Mountain Film Festival to watch.
And if you want to get physical, get over to the Climbing Village where you’ll find a variety of walls on which you can practice your technique. Snappers can wander the Photography Village, foodies can feast in the Farmers Market, and if you are inspired to leave the office behind, check out the ‘Careers in the Outdoors’ stage.
The London Bike Show
Newcomer, The London Bike Show, started only last year but is booming thanks to the UK’s new love of cycling. This year it’s rolling with twice the number of exhibitors. There’s the Animal Relentless Bike Tour delivering some mountain bike freestyle, London’s first ever indoor international bike polo competition, and clever cycling gear from all the leading brands.
The London Boat Show
Last year, combined with The London Boat Show, the three events attracted more than 70,000 visitors – making it the largest consumer event of its kind in Europe, ever (see, I was close).
The Active Travel Show
And if you are more interested in hearing from the tourist boards and activity providers then check out The Active Travel Show – perfect if you are thinking of a round the world adventure or just need more adventure travel information.
Running over four days, tickets are understandably in high demand. But if you fancy wining a pair, just leave a comment below telling us about your greatest adventure – and the team will award the tickets to the most amazing one!
