GB Walking Festivals

Welcome to the webpages for our GB walking festivals, covering 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.  

Watch these pages for more information around the festivals as things develop.  

 

Walk About 2018 social media guidance

Walk About takes place from 26 May – 3 June 2018. This year, the festival has the theme of hidden gems – the amazing things you can often only find on foot. From unexpected views that open up in front of you; peaceful picnic spots or ancient ruins steeped in history, there’s almost always a gem to be found on a walk, and what better way to encourage people to join us for a walk than by letting them know what gems they can expect to find along the way.

Social media is an excellent way to promote your walks programme, the festival and hidden gems
