If you don’t fancy travelling alone, join in with the HQ groups who will be flying from LONDON , SOUTHAMPTON and one NORTHERN AIRPORT tbc – e mail email@example.com if you would prefer to travel with a group rather than meet up with everybody at the festival ( we will be greeting you all the airport though if you do travel alone though!)
FLIGHTS – should you find it easier to fly into Malaga from Regional UK Airports – there will be transfers available ( about 2 hours) let the organisers know what works for you and they will do the rest. All you need to do is spread the word, pack your poles and come and join in the fun!
