Berwick Walking Festival 2014

Berwick Walking Festival 2014

Tue 8th October 2013

The building blocks are in place ready for an inspiring new Berwick Walking Festival in 2014.

Earlier this year a group of interested parties got together and started to plan a brand new Berwick Walking Festival for 2014 after gaining the support of Berwick Town council. After much hard work the walks programme is in place, the web site ( launched and the marketing is starting to be in place ready for the event.

Jon Monks, from Shepherds Walks who are helping to run the event, said ‘The Berwick upon Tweed Walking Festival has been very well received so far with bookings starting to come in from all over the country. With all these people staying in the area over the Walking Festival period it will hopefully bring a real buzz to the region’.

As it is the first year of the festival the organising group have put a varied programme in place so they can see what the demand is like. The festival programme involves everything from a 45 minute Nordic Walking taster session on the beach at Spittal right through to a 15 mile linear walk along the coast from St Abbs to Berwick. For the first year the festival is just going to be 4 days in length but in future years it will grow in length to hopefully keep pace with demand.

Free walk programmes for the Walking Festival are now available at Berwick Tourist Information Centre. Alternatively if you call 01669 621044 you can have one posted out to you.
