The Buxton Adventure Festival will be playing host to the UK premiere of SecondBase Films' Arrival and screening Anthill's NotBad on Saturday 2nd November.

Not only is this your chance to see some epic riding, great storytelling, and inspiring cinematography set against beautiful backdrops, you will also have the opportunity to watch a variety of other adventure sports films, including Silvia's Winter Trails with Matt Hunter, and listen to fellow adventurers in a series of talks accompanying the films.


The Buxton Adventure Festival mixes live lectures with the thrill of the big-screen cinema. Over two days (Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November), visitors can choose from an inspirational series of ten different two-hour talks and film sessions with tales of intrepid expeditions, challenges and races, brought to life by world-class speakers paired with epic films of climbs, runs and rides. The Festival promises a celebration of adventure for outdoor enthusiasts, weekend warriors and armchair adventurers, at the heart of Derbyshire's glorious Peak District.

 Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District. Only a part of the Peak District lies in Derbyshire. The most rugged bit is in Yorkshire. The prettiest bit is all in Staffordshire and some nice bits in Cheshire. Just so you know.
