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. When you arrive at the ticket desk you’ll get an activities card. Carry this around with you and get it signed at each activity; complete your card and win a prize. Whilst the activities are aimed at kids we do encourage everybody to have a go.

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

Fun Run – If yoga isn’t for you, why not start HVAFF with free kids FUN RUN. The run starts at 10:00am on a 2km lead fun run around the school grounds. Register from 9:30am.

Olympic Climbing Competition – Try your hand at 3 disciplines of climbing: bouldering, speed climbing and top roping. Full details to be confirmed soon!

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.

Orienteering – A short family friendly orienteering course around the school grounds including a MAZE section, register and start from the sports hall. Test your navigation skills and will you find the checkpoint in the maze…

Climbing – Leek & Buxton College will erect and staff their mobile climbing tower outside the front of the school for the day. No need to bring your own equipment, they have it all. See the school from a completely new angle.

Mountain Biking – The school also has its own MTB course and bikes. Register in the sports hall.

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