We regret to inform you that this year's Suffolk Walking Festival has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Much hard work goes into planning the festival and we thank all the volunteers and partners for their work in putting together this year's programme.   

We trust you understand the reasons for this decision and apologise for any inconvenience it may cause. 

Anyone who booked tickets will receive a full refund. This will be actioned very shortly, but may take a few days.

If you booked tickets through the TicketSource website then you should have had an email advising the refund will be made. Please bear with TicketSouce as they are working hard to get through many refunds. If you booked tickets at Ipswich Tourist Information Centre, then you will hear from the Walking Festival team who will arrange your refund. If you booked tickets at The Apex, then your refund will be made by The Apex shortly.    

We are committed to delivering the festival in 2021 and thank all our sponsors for their continued support.


If you are using Suffolk’s public rights of way or open access network for your one form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household, please stay local, stick to areas that you are familiar with, and make sure that you comply with government social distancing guidance to stay more than 2 metres from others at all times.
