Event Programme and Activities

We’re busy planning an exciting programme of days out involving hands-on geology. Every year we mix things up so you see a real variety of areas and aspects of geology. Around that, there will be special talks and activities, as well as time for socialising and games in the evenings when we return to base.

Where We Stay

We will stay at Leeson House, the fabulous field studies centre around plenty of geology-based talks, walks and fun activities for all the family. The staff at the centre are really hands-on and give excellent talks and are knowledgeable guides when we go out into the field. 

How Much it Costs

Adult – £355 (18+)

1st Child (up to 17 years old) – £250

2nd and subsequent children (up to 17 years old) – £160
