Alderney events for Autumn & Winter 2014

Alderney events and festivals for the Autumn and Winter season kick off in a sporting way before the food and festivities begin. There’s the half marathon, mens senior open golf, angling competitions, motor sprint and air races to look forward to. If you’ve worked hard enough you may be able to treat yourself at the October Autumn Food and Drink Festival before the island swings into the festive season.
