Who is this event for?

This celebration is ideal for any young person aged 7 or over who has been fishing a few times and is keen to learn more. This is ideal preparation for the National Celebration of Young People and Fishing and for anyone who would like to represent a commonwealth community nation at the National Commonwealth Communities Celebration event on Saturday 22nd October 2022.

This event is free for all participants who attend on the day. However, if you have booked on, subsequently fail to cancel and simply don’t show up on the day, you are liable to be invoiced for the standard £50.00 administration fee, chargeable for each ticket booked.

Therefore, if your circumstances do suddenly change and you find you are no longer able to attend, you must cancel using one of these three mechanisms:
