A Grand Day Out in Langdale
The Grand Day Out returns in October 2016 for more outdoor enjoyment and fundraising! We will be holding the event across a full weekend with events happening throughout the stunning Langdale valley. There are all sorts of exciting events planned and something for all the family and something for everyone to enjoy as part of this celebration of Cumbria. The Grand Day Out weekend is a fundraising event and all proceeds from tickets and the event are going to the Cumbria Community Foundation to support communities and projects in Cumbria.

WHERE CAN I STAY?
We hope that you’ll make a make it to a ‘Grand Weekend Out’ in the beautiful Langdale Valley – maybe buying a weekend pass to make sure you don’t miss a thing. ‘Stay Local’ to help the environment and avoid congesting the narrow lakeland roads. Book early to make sure you get the accommodation you want.
The National Trust Great Langdale Campsite is a supporter of a Grand Day Out and has great facilities as well as pods along with traditional camping facilities – make sure you mention you’re joining in with a Grand Day Out when you book.
If you prefer more solid accommodation there are a variety of booking sites and independent providers. A good start would be Go Lakes the official website for the Lake District. Use the postcode LA22 9JU or search Great Langdale.
PARKING AND TRANSPORT
There is car parking very nearby at the National Trust and LDNPA Pay & Display Car Parks and (weather permitting) we will have an additional parking field open as well. Please do car share where possible as space is limited. If you wish to come by bus the valley is served by the 516 Stagecoach bus.
PARTNERS AND SPONSORS
If you are interested in supporting the Grand Day Out as a sponsor, event partner or project partner then please contact us via our Partners and Sponsors page and we will be in touch soon with more details. We are also keen to engage with providers in the Langdale valley area who would like to get involved with the event.
WILL THERE BE ANOTHER COUNTY-WIDE GRAND DAY OUT?
Oh yes, there most certainly will. We have plans to hold another county-wide event in February 2017, that will be bigger, better and involve many more communities than we were able to engage with in the short timeframes back in January 2016. We will be launching this event during the October event in Langdale and we will be providing lots more information as time progresses. The best way to find out the latest news is to follow us on facebook, twitter and to join our mailing list.
