Upcoming events 2019

12th February 2019 – Beeline Britain – Keswick Lecture Society Event, 7.30pm Queen’s Hall, Keswick, CA12 5QB

Have you ever considered what it would be like to travel between two of the UK’s most iconic landmarks in a straight line? Or even where that line goes? Ever since the brothers John & Robert Naylor made the first recorded journey between Land’s End and John O’Groats in 1871, thousands of teams and individuals have completed the journey in a variety of ways, but never in a straight line. Beeline Britain team member Tori James will take you on a fascinating 1,100km journey from south to north revealing just exactly what it takes to journey by sea kayak, road bike, mountain bike and on foot through some of the UK’s most extreme urban and rural environments. Tickets: £6
