Purposeful Adventure Film Night

Purposeful Adventure - Films and Stories 

November 26th

Whilst the nights are long and the daylight is limited we wanted to take the opportunity of bringing the community together. We're inviting you to our Purposeful Adventure Night. We'll be showing films and sharing stories of adventures on the 26th of November from 17:00 at 20 High Street, St. Davids.


Running a Marathon, One Mile Every Hour - Beau Miles 
A Mile an Hour: A different kind of marathon; running one lap an hour, for 24hrs, around my perfectly mile long block. The rest of the time I do as much as possible; making things, odd jobs, fixing stuff. It's about running, doing, and thinking.

Turn of Mind - Patagonia
"Going up on a splitboard, slow by nature, you start to gaze around. With not much to do, your mind wanders freely.” Intrigued by a deep connection with nature, Patagonia ambassador Nicholas Wolken spent time in the Swiss mountains with his splitboard, good friends and an open mind. 

Nature Connection - Mark Vaughan 
On a mission to provide young people with new perspectives on the world, passionate outdoorsman Manu Maunganidze takes a group of teenagers from inner-city Bristol on a journey into the Welsh mountains.

    Hi, I’m a teacher at Ysgol Bro Gwaun (Fishguard) and I have a very short film about our pupils experiences in nature. The film was co produced by Theatr Gwaun and is called Biophilia. It’s about the teenagers creative and personal responses to nature (connection) and impact on their well being.
    Just saw your post and thought I’d mention this to see if it was of any interest.
    Many thanks
