What to expect:

What to expect:
Park and meet at Crowden Car Park at 7.15pm.
The event begins in Crowden woodland, next to the car park at 7:30pm.
Please be on time as we’ll be walking up to the Woodhead chapel altogether at 7:45pm and can’t wait for latecomers!
Then there will be a 1km walk (mixed terrain, off-road paths and slight ascent up to the chapel) which takes the average person 20 minutes.
There are steep steps up to the chapel door, but a handrail is available.
During the performances you will sit on chapel pews for two acts with a short interval.

Once the event is finished, at 9:30pm we will walk back to Crowden Car Park – we strongly recommend bringing a torch to help light the way for you and others.

There is no phone signal at Crowden Car Park, but there is at the chapel.

Please note: This event is not suitable for those under 18 years old. No dogs.
