GB Walking Festivals

Welcome to the webpages for our GB walking festivals, covering Festival of Winter Walks (23 December 2017-07 January 2018) and Walk About (Saturday 26 May-Sunday 03 June 2018).  

The purpose of our walking festivals is to inspire people to join our fantastic walking community.  We’d like to thank all of you for your fantastic festivals work to date, to thank the Players of the People’s Postcode Lottery for their continued support, which is enabling us to make our festivals bigger and better.
