Following on from the success of previous 4 years Whitchurch Walking Festivals the 2017 Festival was held on 12th - 14th May. Once again the festival was a resounding success and the weather generally was kind to us.
We will be holding another festival on May 11th to 13th in 2018. The details will announced when they are available.
If you would like details of the 2018 festival activities please send your email address via the 'contact us page' and we will keep you updated when they become available. 2017 participants who gave us their email address, e.g. when booking, will be notified directly.
