Advance Notice – Walking Festival in May – Book the Dates

Yes we know it is only April’s edition of The Mead but the city’s hugely popular, annual walking festival – Bristol Walk Fest (a celebration of walking and walks throughout the city) will take place from Wednesday 1 May to Friday 31 May 2019.

Bristol’s month-long walking festival, now in its seventh successful year, regularly attracts over 3,000 walkers from across the city and beyond.

Each year there is a variety of walking events on offer. Whether you like historical tours, nature walks, exploring street art, walking sports, or you just want to get fit and enjoy some fresh air, there is something for everyone.

The mostly free events are for all ages from young to old and all levels of fitness are welcome – walk distances range from less than a mile to more than ten.

The list of walks will be published soon on website – and in a leaflet.

There will be plenty of walks in and around Southmead but why not branch out and try visiting somewhere further afield or taking part in something you’ve not done before.

Bristol Walk Fest 2019 is being coordinated by Active Ageing Bristol in collaboration with Bristol Sport Foundation, The Anchor Society and St Monica Trust, working in partnership with Age UK Bristol. Principal funders are Active Ageing Bristol and the Travelwest Fund.
