Tyne Tour 2018

Friday 2nd November 2018 16:00 at Hexham

Winter is coming... but not before Tyne Tour.

Come along to one of the biggest paddling events of the year, where hundreds of paddlers descend on Hexham to paddle the north Tyne, meet other paddlers, dance the night away in the ceilidh and generally have a good time. It doesn't matter whether you are a seasoned paddler or a fresh faced beginner, this weekend away is a great time for everyone, so come along and enjoy.

We will head up on Friday evening to set up camp in Hexham, have a warm meal before preparing for the exciting Saturday, where we will head down the north Tyne, a river great for all levels with the exciting wardens gorge towards the end. And then in the evening the infamous ceilidh, where any sense of order left gets thrown out onto the banks of the river as you try to not fall over traversing the floor. On the Sunday we will find a suitable river on the way back to Durham before ending up at the boathouse.

Early bird tickets are £26 and with petrol costs expecting to be about £10 this trip is an amazingly cheap price for a weekend away. We will be camping so bring appropriate gear and plenty of warm clothes, and bring food for yourself or money to buy some whilst we are there.

If there are any questions don't hesitate to contact me (Connor) or any other exec through our email address, and for more info check out their website here.
