#AAF23 Official Highlights Reel!
Check out some of the highlights from this years Armchair Adventure Festival!
Like what you see? Good news! The Armchair Adventure Festival is returning to Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in Cornwall from 25th-28th July 2024!
#AAF23 was our biggest and best festival yet so we're sticking with our summer dates for #AAF24! This years festival will run from 15:00 on 25th July to 15:00 Sunday 28th July. It will be jam packed with more talks, activities and live music than ever before and be another gigantic celebration of adventure travel!
As always the weekend will be centred around inspiring tales of adventure from some of the world's leading adventurers. In 2023, we had tales from a man who accidentally invented white water rafting while completing the first descent of the Nile in the 1960s and a woman who ran a marathon in Antarctica dressed as a frozen pea, who knows what crazy tales of adventure will have in 2024!?
On top of that there will be more fun activities to get involved in than ever before. Whether it's kayaking up the Tamar or sailing around Drake's Island, we'll be making the most of the UK's National Marine Park in Plymouth Sound which is just a five minute walk from the festival. There will also be another funky line-up of amazing live musicians and the usual fantastic food and drink!
