"I don't want a lot for Christmas, There is just one thing I need... All I want for Christmas is BIG North Christmas 2019!"
And we can make it happen! Our premier Christmas event is back once again to delight and entertain you with a packed weekend of celebrations!
We'll be back in the Lake District at Langdale, where we'll have a range of winter walks and other activities for you to enjoy, along with a dazzling three course Christmas dinner, friends old and new, the OutdoorLads bar to to keep you in the party spirit, great entertainment and of course our very own DJ Dan spinning you round (right round!) on the dancefloor until the early hours. Just the perfect way to celebrate the Christmas period, OutdoorLads style. (Oh and singing, the singing!...!)
Our venue couldn't be more fitting for Christmas, set in an old mansion house with its own grounds. Whether you choose to relax in the main living room around the fire or brave the December cool air and take your drinks to the newly built fire pit on the main garden, you will have no trouble having a good time.
Set in the heart of the Lakes, we're well positioned for access to great walks and there'll be a variety on offer which will provide a challenge for those who want it, or a gentler stroll for those who wish to take things a bit easier. We hope to be able to offer a cycle and maybe other events too.
The OutdoorLads Charity Bar with its extensive spirits, lagers, beers, wines and soft drinks will be at your disposal for the weekend and serving draught real ales and lager too, all at great prices. Remember, buying from the bar raises money for OutdoorLads, so help the charity by buying from the bar. Did you know you can hire our portable bar for your own events, birthdays, weddings and parties - and raise money for a charity of your choice and/or OutdoorLads at the same time.

So don't miss out this year, get yourself to BIG North Christmas and maximise the good times this December!
Dogs: Sorry, this event is not suitable for dogs.
We'll make the activities for the weekend available here, starting with a Lake District Cycle which is available to book onto now!
What to bring
The weekend will be filled with day walks on Saturday, so bring your walking gear and plenty of warm clothes if you fancy a wander to the fire pit in the garden of the hostel at night.
Festive jumpers will be in order for the hostel itself, so please bring them regardless of how hideous they may be!!
As always, Secret Santa will be paying us all a visit so bring a secret santa gift worth around £5 if you want to take part.
Food & drink
The OutdoorLads Charity Bar will be on hand to supply your drinks all weekend and what is better, buying from us helps OutdoorLads raise funds which keep our events affordable for all. So drink at the bar and leave your drinks at home. We now have an ice machine, and real ale and lager on tap... we're going up in the world!
Friday Arrival: Mulled wine and mince pies will be available from 6pm in the main living area. A great way to get the weekend started!
Friday Buffet: Please bring an item for the buffet. Don't go over the top; if everyone brings an item equivalent to feed one person we will have a buffet enough for everyone. Try not to bring pizza and quiche - be creative, it always goes down well.
Saturday Breakfast: A selection of toast, cereals and preserves will be available.
Saturday Christmas Dinner: A three course feast of epic proportions. Soup to start, then Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings followed by a festive dessert. Dietary alternatives will be provided. PLEASE ENSURE YOU FILL IN YOUR DIETARY INFORMATION ON YOUR PROFILE.
Sunday Breakfast: Sausage and bacon butties will be available plus the cereals and toast should you want.
