Our ever popular singing walk is centred on the small village of Catton, near Allendale and we are very fortunate to have the services of Ian Brown, a local singer who has previous Festival experience.

We will walk along quiet footpaths above Catton, where we will have extensive views of the surrounding moors and the Allendale Chimneys. We then drop down to walk alongside the pretty River Allen. Throughout the walk, we will stop regularly to learn new songs and will sing them all on our return to Catton Village Hall, where the WI will be serving our tea.
