After the huge success of last year’s event, the Foxlake Outdoor Festival returns bigger and better for 2017. Head along the East Lothian coast to the beautiful surroundings of Foxlake Adventures, Dunbar, in May for an exhilarating weekend offering a world of adventures for all the family.
Following the massive success of this event in 2016, when the first ever Foxlake Outdoor Festival sold out weeks in advance, Foxlake Adventures in partnership with East Lothian Council, have decided to extend the festival to a full weekend across the 20 and 21 May 2017, offering families and individuals the opportunity to get outdoors and begin their own adventure in East Lothian. There will be tickets available for each day, weekend tickets and once again children’s tickets will be absolutely free. Tickets will start at £17 for an adult day entry and £30 for a weekend ticket, but if you purchase prior to the end of February, you will receive an early bird offer of £14 for an adult day entry and £25 for a weekend ticket. Again children’s tickets will all be free!
Many of the hugely popular elements of last year’s event will return in 2017, including the Industry Wake Parks who will once again run an Industry Pro Wakeboard Tour Event. Bringing some of the most talented wake boarders from around the world to compete, this is a further growth of Scotland’s biggest wakeboard event. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy and watch the thrills of professional wakeboarding.
Also returning is the Decades Music Stage, featuring everyone’s favourite tribute bands, celebrating the last 60 years of music, something for everyone. There will be a talented line-up of East Lothian’s finest local musicians, and joining them this year will be the Comedy Stage, with a selection of Britain’s finest comedians guaranteeing laughs throughout the weekend. To keep the children entertained we will be bringing back our popular Kids’ Zone with the inflatable village filled with every bouncy castle imaginable, they can also take on the challenge of the climbing wall and even get their faces painted.
The weekend is all about getting the family active outdoors, so you will have the chance to try out some of East Lothian’s outdoor adventures for yourself. Try out the Foxfall Course, the UK’s only rope course constructed over water, or get on your wet suit and give wakeboarding a try, or if you prefer to stay dry, hop on and master a segway!
The programme continues to expand and we will be adding activities throughout February to offer the most thrilling world of adventures at the Foxlake Outdoor Festival in May 2017.
Councillor John McMillan, East Lothian Council’s spokesperson for Economic Development and Tourism said: “Foxlake Adventures is Scotland’s first cable wakeboarding park along with the UK’s only ropes course constructed over water. Foxlake is located in the heart of East Lothian 25 miles east of Edinburgh, nestled in beautiful woodland on the edge of the John Muir Way. The festival is not only committed to enjoying and celebrating our fabulous landscape but we also want to protect it. So, there will be a shuttle bus service from Dunbar Train Station throughout the weekend, giving the opportunity for all of our visitors to use the excellent rail links from Edinburgh and the North of England and leave the car at home. We guarantee an exhilarating day for all the family – thrills for adults and children alike!”
