Lincolnshire Wolds WalkingFestival
We will be back Saturday 18 May to Sunday 2 June 2019.
The Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival will be back for its 15th year offering 16 days of great walking across the East Midlands' only Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Step forward to lead walks for the 15th Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival.
Organisers of the popular walking festival are urging organisations and businesses to contribute to their programme of walks and activities for the 2019 festival, which will run from 18th May to 2nd June. 2019 will be the 15th Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival, and to celebrate the programme is being extended to include some outdoor activities. Festival Co-ordinator Natalie Lunt explains: "We want to offer a rich and varied programme of walks and activities which features something for all ages and abilities and celebrates what the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has to offer. We are keen to inspire young people and families to take part in the festival, so along with the relaxed strolls and challenging hikes we want to offer activity walks, themed walks, tours and taster sessions. This is an ideal opportunity for local business and attractions in the area to, quite literally, get their name on the map and showcase what they have to offer!" The festival, which is co-ordinated by Heritage Lincolnshire in partnership with the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, attracts in the region of 3,000 participants each year and is one of the largest and best-attended events of its kind in the UK. If you have an idea for a walk or activity please contact us by email or you can submit your idea online at LWWF EVENTS Hurry! The deadline for submissions has been extended to Monday 19th November 2018.
Co-ordinated by Heritage Lincolnshire, in partnership with Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival remains one of the largest, and best-attended, events of its kind in the UK. This year 2018 we were delighted to be offering 104 walks; our varied programme offered something for all ages and abilities, providing a great way for everyone to experience a beautiful landscape, its culture and heritage, whilst enjoying some healthy exercise in good company.
With walks ranging from 0.5 miles to 76 miles we hope that EVERYONE was able to take part in the festival, whether you preferred a relaxed short stroll, discovering town centre heritage, or a challenging stride across hills and vales. Many of our walks were suitable for wheelchair users and accessible with pushchairs. We also had lots of family friendly walks on offer featuring fun activities such as shelter building, bushcraft, treasure trails and bug hunts. Take a look at the Walks page for full details of what was on offer.
