Today, 4th October, marks a full year since we walked together, at last years Autumn Festival. What a strange year!

We are already considering our options for Spring 2021, and as we in the North East remain in our own local lockdown, we are finding it difficult to make definite plans for next week, let alone next year. We are determined that there will be a Festival, though, and are consulting with our leaders and back ups about how we might go ahead. Do watch this space for further news - and if you have an idea for how we might celebrate the wonderful walking possibilities around Haltwhistle, and involve our loyal participants as we do so, please let us know. You can do so by sending a message to the enquiry box on this site.



We have been touched by the generosity of our walkers who were looking forward to the Festival, and have suggested donating their booking fees to help us meet the shortfall that late cancellation will cause. 

If you would like to do this, please send a cheque made payable to Haltwhistle walking Festival Ltd, to:
The Treasurer

Haltwhistle Walking Festival Ltd

Whinney House

Shield Hill


NE49 9NW

Everyone who has booked for the Festival will be receiving a refund from our agents. We cannot short-circuit this process, so any donation must be by this separate step.

Many thanks, in anticipation.
