SPRING FESTIVAL 2021
Our 2021 Virtual Walking Festival - April 24th - May 3rd - is raring (or should we say bear-ing) to go!
The 2021 Festival is going to be very different this year, due to the pandemic. Even though restrictions are beginning to ease, we will not be able to lead large groups, hold actual social events or ask people to get on a bus. But our Virtual Festival will still be memorable.
We have a Festival Champion, Halty Bear and his ever-increasing band of little bears - to guide you through the week.
We hope that you will have a great time during the nine days from 24th of this month until the May Bank Holiday, making and sharing new memories.
You can now walk in groups of up to six people, or two families if that is more, and can choose your own walks. Our wonderful countryside is still here to be enjoyed, and wherever you are, in this country or abroad, we hope our plans will help you to do just that.
We have a dedicated Virtual Festival page, which includes challenges, ideas for routes in the Haltwhistle area (such as the Haltwhistle Rings) and even a pattern, for making you own Halty Bear!
Of course, we want to know what you are doing and more importantly, where your Halty Bear has been! Please take photographs, and use our Facebook Page to share them - and also to see what your fellow festival goers have been up to. You may want to use their ideas.
We will even be holding a Festival Social, "in" the Comrades Club. By Zoom, of course!
