Light up Langdale as LAMRT turn 50 – A Festival of Light Special
3 April, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
2020 will mark the 50th year since the formation of the Langdale & Ambleside Mountain Rescue Team, and LMG are collaborating with them to help them celebrate in the way we know best – by lighting up the fells!
Join us on the evening of Friday 3rd April 2020 (6pm, Sticklebarn Tavern, Langdale, LA22 9JU) to climb up the fells featured in the team’s logo to create yet more iconic mountain art.
There will be a good 1.5-2 hours of walking as you hike to the summit of either Pike ‘O Stickle, Loft Crag or Harrisons Stickle via ‘Mark Gate’. As per all LFOL events there is an element of standing around but the atmosphere such an event creates cannot be described. Following the ‘light up’, during which pro photographers who will be stationed across the valley will get some shots, we will descend back to the Sticklebarn for last orders.
The event is a celebration of LAMRT, however it will also be used to raise funds for 2 charities. These will be the Lake District Search and Rescue Association and Fix the Fells. More info on these charities can be found in the links below.
We ask that everyone who attends the event makes a donation to both or either charity. This can be done through cash on the night or via a link which is due to be set up.
Suitability to the event – Due to the nature of this event it is best suited to those with previous walking experience and reasonable fitness. Unlike our LFOL event on Catbells we are not lighting the whole mountain, just the summits – so you need to get to the top (and back again of course). Well behaved dogs welcome on the event.
Kit requirements – You need to come appropriately equipped for the conditions. Being early spring it is bound to be cold up there, especially when standing around. Bring more layers than you think you’ll need as well as hot drinks. You need to bring your own torch.
Parking – There is a National Trust Car Park at the meet point, as well as a Lake District National Park Car Park. Both of which are Pay & Display. Please think about car pooling with others you know who are attending.
Tickets – You do not need a ticket to attend this event, simply turn up on the night!
