Bledlow Ridge - Up with the Larks! (2101)

Saturday 22 May ~ 10:00 AM

The "Bledlow Ridge - Up the the Larks!" route is a very scenic circular walk led by expert wildlife guide Steven of GG Wildlife Walks (also known as the 'Bird Whisperer'!). It starts/finishes at Dean Farm Meadow home of Big Top Events. There are hill climbs which lead to beautiful views across the countryside where we see Red Kites and Buzzards soar, to long straights which allow us to really see and hear the Skylarks, Yellowhammers and Corn Bunting serenading us, this really is a great start to your day! Return to Dean Farm Meadow where Big Top Events will have pop-up street food available to purchase. A beautiful setting to stay on for lunch. There will be five different street food vendors, bars and coffee available with exclusive access from 1pm for Festival walkers. From 2pm the food market will be open to more people as part of a Big Top Open Day, with a giant tipi and live music. You are welcome to stay on for this too, further details here
