Next Event: Hartington, October 12–14th 2018

Hartington is a lovely Peak District honeypot. It has a village pond with ducks, a large church, well stocked grocers that sells bottles of wine, two pubs, gift shops, nice walks and a cheese shop. Plenty to see and do. We will be using the hall which is large and located between the church and the village centre. There is no parking at the hall but plenty in the village, no problem parking campers in the village. There is a grocery shop and others. The village web site has accommodation options, including the youth hostel. Unfortunately the kitchen has no cooker, but we hope to be able to use camping stoves. For public transport, no train station, but there are (or were!) buses from Buxton, Ashbourne, Bakewell and Chesterfield.

More details to come.

If you have been a few times and like Freaks then possibly you are feeling inspired to organise a Freaks, maybe somewhere near you, or simply somewhere Freaks has never been before, see our Tips for organisers (32Kb Word doc) or PDF version.
