BreakAway and other fun events

BedPosts Forum members get to know each other whilst communicating regularly with each other on the noticeboards. A natural extension to this is to meet in person. We organise a big-scale event each year which we call The BreakAway.

The BreakAway events are organised around food, drink, walking and tourism. Each of the events since the inception of the BreakAway has also involved a tour of an historic castle and 27th January 2016 will be no exception. We'll tour Ripley Castle.

Of course, Forum members will get together at any time with friends they've made from afar on their own volition.
