The Armchair Adventure Festival 2022

The Armchair Adventure Festival is back for 2022, bringing a celebration of adventure to Cornwall. The world’s leading adventurers will gather at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park for a full weekend of adventure!

The event will feature inspiring tales of adventure and exploration, adventurous activities to get involved in, brilliant live music and top-quality local beer and food.

The amazing festival is a celebration of adventure travel in an idyllic Cornish location. The Armchair Adventure Festival is from the 22nd – 25th of September, don’t miss out and book your tickets now!

Last year, festival attendees paddle-boarded with dolphins in Plymouth Sound, they listened to tales of adventure from world record holders like Jamie Ramsay and danced the night away to amazing local bands including Plymouth’s own Land of the Giants.

This year, there are a huge array of fun activities you can enjoy at this 3-day, jam-packed festival!


In 2022, the festival returns with a whole new crop of adventurous folk and amazing bands ready to share their stories and tales. Already announced are triple around the world yachtsman Conrad Humphreys, the UK military’s chief survival instructor John Hudson, one of the first women to motorcycle around the world Elspeth Beard and many, many more.


Festival goers will again have the opportunity to step out of their armchairs and enjoy a whole host of other active festivities. There’s an opportunity to take out a kayak or paddleboard and explore the 7km’s of pristine coastline which surrounds the festival. Alternatively, if you’d rather stay on dry land, you can make use of the miles of mountain bike trails, join in with the family-friendly foraging, fire-lighting and shelter-building survival workshops or even walk with the resident alpacas around the incredible Mount Edgcumbe Country Park.


The incredible music line-up for this festival includes The Andy Quick Band (Glastonbury, Bestival), The Cabarets (Boomtown Fair and who was featured by BBC Introducing) and Martin Harley, who was voted the 17th best guitarist ever by Guitar magazine!


You can also expect award-winning food and drink, luxury glamping options, a beautiful sea view from your tent and with just a five-minute potter through the grounds to the beach, there really is no better location for an adventure festival.

There are day and weekend passes available for this incredible festival, so make sure you come along, learn some fun new skills and get active!
