"I've had the best weekend ever. It's such a personal and friendly travel festival"
Established in 2022, the Lightweight Adventure Festival celebrates travel and trail riding in all lightweight forms. Back then, it was a rustic, authentic and stripped back experience, aiming was to bring 30 lightweight adventurers together. It was far more successful than anticipated and bought a community together!
Now, the festival is aimed at travellers, adventurers and all those interested in the Lightweight Adventure scene. This is not a luxury boutique festival by any means. Instead, it peels back those layers of luxury just a little and gets back to basics. Now we're adventuring!

WHO ARE THE LIGHTWEIGHT ADVENTURERS?
The Lightweight Adventurers started out in 2018, with just two regular blokes, Jamie Thom and Marc Deri, recording what they loved doing...riding off road on their Honda CRFs. Little did they know that it would grow into the thriving community it is today. Our dedicated subscribers enjoy chatting, riding and, as of 2022, meeting up at The Lightweight Adventurers Festival! Passion and enthusiasm go hand-in-hand with everything we do.
Our door is always open to new subscribers, no matter their experience level. We are proud to bring together people from all over the UK and beyond. Come join us at our next event — we’d love to share all that The Lightweight Adventurers has to offer.
