In this section you can find out about upcoming events.  You can also read reports from some of the events we have run in the past so you can find out a bit more about what to expect.

Almost all our events are free to members and we aim to run a wide enough variety of events that whatever your age, bleeding disorder, or location, there is something for everyone.  We can usually help with the costs of travel as well.
