Exercise your legs and your vocal cords! The Big Acoustic Walk returns to Plas y Brenin for 2019! Enjoy a guided introduction to a range of walks in Snowdonia on a popular weekend that celebrates Music and Mountains. Your leader will help you interpret the landscape and you will learn about hillwalking as you go and In the evening, the centre will be flooded with music and you can join in too.

Whether you're a musician, vocalist or just an enthusiastic listener, this weekend is a great opportunity to share your love of walking and music with other outdoor enthusiasts and musicians.

After an active day and a hearty evening meal there'll be an 'Open Mic' Evening where (if you choose to) you can take the stage and play a number or two for your fellow walkers. Of course, if you're not a performer at heart, you can simply sit back and enjoy the show or retire to a corner of the bar to string a spontaneous tune together with fellow musicians.
