Why this resource is great for Walking Festival/Event Organisers!!

Walking Festivals UK aims to promote walking festivals to a wider national audience for free.  

Being actively involved with organising a walking festival. we have found that most festivals are attended by the majority of local people. We have created this resource to help walking festival organisers promote their walking festivals to the walking audience and help to ensure a fuller festival. Our aim is to make the website a one-stop place for walkers to find your walking festival, book their walks/talks/shows from your walk program and any accommodation that they need. Get directions to the festival and any other information.

We only host and promote your programme and do not have any contact with prospective walkers who may attend your festival or event.
