Corby Walking Festival

Description Of Walking Festival

The Festival is changing its look and becoming Corby Outdoors Festival for 2016, after making some exciting new links with the Corby Cycle Fest event.

Don’t worry, for all of you who enjoy your walking, we will still be retaining the  walking programme as an important part of the Festival, with  walks  already being planned to take in some of North Northamptonshire’s most  scenic views and picturesque villages, such as Cottingham, Middleton, the Lyveden Way (near the National Trust  site Lyveden New Bield), Gretton and Harringworth.
The 34 mile Around Corby route will also be back in 2016 as a new challenge – watch this space!
In addition for 2016 we are organising fun family cycling and arts events, all of which will celebrate getting active, being outdoors and enjoying some of Corby borough’s loveliest countryside, as well as the town’s amazing woodland areas, whatever the weather.
And we will still be launching the Festival with the ever popular Lakelands Festival Family Fun Day & Dog Show on Monday 30 May at East Carlton Country Park, courtesy of the Festival’s beneficiary charity, Lakelands Day Care Hospice.

For those of you who enjoy your cycling, visit the Corby Borough Council website for regular updates on the Corby Cycle Fest event, which takes place on Saturday 25 June 2016, 11 - 4 outside the Corby Cube.

Regular Festival and Cycle Fest updates will be posted on this website throughout 2016 so keep a lookout and put the dates in your diary!

  • If you enjoy walking, hiking, trekking or like to find out about a new village or town, or a new national park, walking festivals are excellent ways to see the different parts of the country with local guides. These events and festivals are often organised by local people who know the walks and the areas very well and more often than not are non-profit events, meaning the walks are either free or only a small amount of money.Read more »
