Mendip CaveFest ’18. overview

Official fundraising event for the Mendip Cave Rescue 


Update: Priddy Farm Shop will be open for bookings 7am onwards Sat/Sun. Call them to book your space!

Mendip CaveFest 18 Will be held in Priddy on Friday 4th – Monday 7th May and  will again be a free event.
We aim to gather interest early so we can build the best event we can, this includes finding leaders. We have already set up a community event and chat room on Facebook called “Cave fest UK” so please have a look and get involved.

We are planning more than just caving.  Hopefully we will be able to include a workshop or two and a couple of talks from well known faces.
Ideas, offers of help, time, or otherwise are welcomed.  The whole aim of Cavefest is to celebrate what caving has to offer for the caving community as a  whole.

Mendip CaveFest 17  was held over Easter and we organised over 50 cavers trips to some of the best caves on the Mendips.  It was our first year and everyone who came got to cave.
This year we plan to do the same thing but bigger if possible.
It’s a free event other than camping or other accommodation. Hut fees and tresspass fees may also apply.
It’s simply a bunch of cavers getting together to celebrate our passion. The organisers aim to arrange some 50+ trips  for all levels of experience.
I hope this helps.

CavefestUK are  working together with local committees and clubs to bring to you an amazing weekend of caving activities such as;

Cave rescue demonstration by the MCR

Family rambles guided by the Mendip A.O.N.B.

SRT training and demonstrations
Talks from explorers and pioneers of caving.
Photography talks and competitions

Evening entertainment , bar and food…You never know who might show up! 😉

Needless to say, your support it what makes these events work so please make an effort and tell people about it.
