The 2019 Suffolk Walking Festival has been and gone and is becoming a mere memory, but with nearly 30 million footprints (!) left in the sands, soils and paths of Suffolk, it's nothing but great memories we have.
This year's festival introduced some great new ideas: we had a walk with Kite the Sheepdog on Orford Ness, another excellent Night Safari where we spoke with Tawny Owls, rode in military vehicles, sailed on a thames barge, and cruised along the River Stour. With art lessons, poetry writing and photography courses, the Suffolk Waking Festival is much more than just walking. Our walk leaders share their enthusiam for this amazing county with its beautiful landscapes and facinating heritage.
We're already heads down making plans for next year's festival, speaking to our friends and colleagues, sharing lots of idaes and talking to some new friends. For 2020, we will have some very exciting new walks, more Fringe Festival events, plus a brand new Challenge Walk!
Mark your diaries now for next year's festival which will be Saturday 9th May to Sunday 31st May 2020.
We look forward to seeing and walking with you on the 2020 Suffolk Walking Festival!
