Our 2021 Virtual Walking Festival - April 24th - May 3rd - aims to involve newcomers and our regular Festival Friends in a series of shared experiences. We hope that you will have a great time during these nine days making and sharing new memories. Our wonderful countryside is still here to be enjoyed and wherever you are in this country or abroad, we hope that our plans will help you do just that. 

The Government’s advice keeps changing, and we are all anxious to stay safe, and act responsibly. Make sure that you stay up to date with where you can walk, with whom you can walk and how far you can travel before putting on your boots. Simply heading out your front door would be perfect - we don't know your immediate vicinity, even if you have come to know it like the back of your hand. We would love to see your pictures!
So, this time the range of walks over the nine festival days is limited only by your imagination and ingenuity. We have all sorts of ideas to stimulate you, but we want you to be walking whenever and wherever you can – and we want to see and hear all about what you are up to. 
Get your cameras and notebooks out, sharpen your pencils and get going! Bring your own Halty Bear out of hibernation, and make sure he or she comes along too. Have a look at our Facebook page to see a plethora of Halty Bears out having adventures!
Booking Great news! You don’t have to pay anything to take part in this festival – but we would like to know who is going to take part in our Zoom social and a small donation would be much appreciated too. More details later!
