Meetup Schedule 2022

Join our Meetup group for adventures outdoors, including organised hikes, foraging, survival and bushcraft: meetup.com/fireside-meetups

Our Meetups are organised by season, and most are free unless there are direct costs like accommodation included. Please be aware of our Terms, Conditions & Disclaimers before attending our Meetups.

Winter

The season for snow-capped mountains, layering up, star gazing and cosy fires! We'll be offering a mix of day treks and foraging walks in the beautiful winter light.

Spring

Change is in the air again and you can expect foraging meetups for spring greens, seaweeds and early mushrooms! We also love this time of year for being out in the hills and enjoying the changing landscape. 

Summer

Summer is all about the sea, camping, and late nights around the fireside! This is a quieter time for foragers, but a busy time for adventure hikes using the longer days to tackle the most challenging routes. We'll also be running some very special bushcraft & survival training days to take your camping skills to the next level.

Autumn

The prime mushroom foraging season! Most of our meetups will be in beautiful woodland and ancient pastureland, where most of our fungi friends can be found. It's also a bounty for wild fruits, nuts and second flushes of wild greens.
