Although HVAFF is a film festival there’s a whole lot more going on too. A festival ticket will allow you to take part in any (or ideally all!) of the activities below. Whilst the activities are aimed at kids we do encourage everybody to have a go. All activities apart from Yoga are free.

Yoga – Starting at 10am, yoga teacher Elaine Bull will give a morning yoga class for adults (£4) and kids (£2). No equipment necessary. Check in at reception on arrival.

Orienteering – Check at the orienteering desk in the sports hall to pick up a map and instructions to take part in the course outside on the school grounds.

Olympic Climbing Competition – Try your hand at 3 disciplines of climbing: bouldering, speed climbing and top roping. Head to the sports hall to sign up. No equipment necessary, though feel free to bring your own harness, shoes and chalk bag if you have them.

Caving – The Derbyshire Caving Association loan us their fibreglass cave for the day. Put on a headtorch and helmet and race through the twisted maze to see if you can get your name at the top of the leader-board. Located in the sports hall.

Mountain Biking – The school also has its own MTB course Alpkit should be on hand with a selection of their bikes for people to try out.

Library Activities – if you have younger kids then don’t fret, there will be adventure themed activities for them in the newly refurbished library.

Exhibition – To inspire budding artists and adventurers, Chellie Carrol, locally based artist and  illustrator will be showcasing her art work at HVAFF including her prints from ‘Fantastic Female Adventurers’ and an exciting new project!
