Spring has now officially sprung so what better way to make the most of the milder weather than getting to grips with the great outdoors.

This weekend you can sample the Bushcraft experience, also otherwise known as acquiring 'rural survival skills.'

This event in Matlock allows aspiring amateur Woodmen & women to spend the day setting up camp in a natural environment while learning how to build your own shelter, create a fire from scratch and get to grips with other useful ways to survive out in the wild.

You can book a place or read more about the event from the organisers.
