Lectures & Events

From this page you can find information about some of the main events on the High Sports & Local calendar throughout the year. Some of these events require tickets (e.g. High Sports lectures, tickets available through our website or shop) or event entry fees (please click on the links to the individual details & entry details).

LECTURES

The primary aim of our High Sports Winter Lectures is to raise funds for the Youngsters in the Mountains fund & charity. 

We're pleased to present the 2017/18 Winter Series an entertaining, unique, and hopefully inspirational, array of interesting speakers. In recent years each series has sold out well before a lecture date and with the line up this year we expect the same.
