AUTUMN  2019

September 28th to October 6th 2019


The festival is over. It was wet on some days, although there were notable and sunny exceptions. Our wet weather gear was tested to its limits on others.

We did not expect our last autumn festival to be memorable because of the weather. Many thanks go to all the volunteers who have continued to work throughout the week. Some had to completely re plan routes when rivers burst their banks or bridges became too dangerous.

As soon as they have dried out, the committee will be hard at work with plans for the Spring 2020 festival. We will have a completely new website by then.

The festival will be from May 2nd to 10th inclusive.

Please put that in your diaries now.

Important dates for your diaries


May 2nd to 10th

The festival will be 9 days long instead of 10 because the Bank Holiday is on Friday May 8th to coincide with VE Day

There will be no autumn festival in 2020
