Thursday 5th July 2018, from 6pm
Meeting Point: 
Underfall Yard, Cumberland Road, BS1 6XG

Please join us for our BNW Club Summer Social for a Nordic walk with food to follow at the fantastic and quirky Underfall Yard, a shipbuilding yard-come-museum on the floating harbour.  We will also be hosting sixteen guests from Nordic Walking Girona who are visiting us that week so it promises to be a fun evening.

Join us on an evening walk with Nordic Walking Girona finishing at Underfall Yard for food, or if you don't fancy the walk feel free to come just for food at 7.30pm.  Underfall Yard is charming with tables and chairs outside overlooking the harbour, festoon lights and fire pits.  If the weather is damp there is inside space and a gazebo so we'll still have fun even if there's no sun!

The cost of the evening is £20pp and includes:

6-7.30pm optional 4 mile Nordic walk with instructors and Nordic Walking Girona
We will meet in front of Lockside, Cumberland Basin on the stretch of grass beside the floating harbour, ready to start walking at 6pm.  Our walk will take us across the river and along the tow path, climbing up the famous Nightingale Valley of Leigh Woods before heading into Ashton Court and back to Lockside/Underfall Yard for food and drink.  If you have parked near Lockside you will be able to put your poles back in your car and change into your party shoes.

7.30pm Party at Underfall Yard
Food and a welcome drink of either lager, cider, wine or fizz will be provided by Pickle, a high quality local caterer.  There will be a cash bar and a sound system - so Ros will have a field day with her music!  There will be kettle chips when you arrive.  The food will be your choice from the grill and a salad bar as follows:

  • Either a British beef burger, honey and mustard chicken strips or halloumi from the grill
  • Brioche or granary roll from Redland Bakery
  • Pickle's special slaw
  • Summer green salad
  • Diced gherkin salsa
  • Summer potato salad.

We really hope you can make it and we look forward to celebrating what's been a fantastic year so far at Bristol Nordic Walking. And there's so much more to come!
