Mendip Cave Festival 2018
« on: September 11, 2017, 09:47:46 am »
Hello fellow cavers.   :bounce:

This is an early advertisement for the second annual Mendip Cave Festival. It will be held in Priddy on Friday 4th - Monday 7th May and it will again be a free event.
The aim of this post is to gather interest early so we can build the best event we can, this includes finding leaders. We have already set up a community event and chat room on Facebook called "Cave fest UK" so please have a look and get involved.
Alternatively, please feel free to add comments here, or indeed offer your services if you feel you can.

Please be patient for a reply as we are doing our best.
Thank you for your interest.

Is it worth me asking what this is all about, what happens at this festival and what you are organising? (I still don't do Facebook and I didn't get an answer last year).

Hi there and thank you for asking.
This year mendip cave fest was held over easter and we organised over 50 cavers trips to some of the best caves on the mendips.  It was our first year and everyone who came got to cave.
Next year we plan to do the same thing but bigger if possible.
It's a free event other than camping or other accommodation fees.
It's simply a bunch of cavers getting together to celebrate our passion. The organisers aim to arrange some 50+ trips next year for all levels of experience.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Is it just caving trips then our are you also planning anything else? Stomps or workshops perhaps?

We are planning more than just caving.  Hopefully we will be able to include a workshop or two and a couple of talks from well known faces.
Ideas, offers of help, time, or otherwise are welcomed.  The whole aim of cave fest is to celebrate what the mendips have to offer for the caving community as a  whole.
Please feel free to contact me direct if you wish to get involved
I hope this helps.
Thank you again
Neil.
