Frome’s popular annual Walking Festival is back this November with 3 action-packed days of guided walks for all ages, interests and abilities.
From Friday 10th to Sunday 12th November, take your pick from the 18 walks on offer (14 of which are free) and put on your walking boots, wellies or even your dancing shoes. This year’s walks cover distances from a gentle half-mile to a whopping 12 and a half miles, so whether you’re a seasoned rambler or looking for a fun family activity, there’s something in the programme for you.
Along with some brand new walks, many of the highlights from previous years are making a triumphant return. These include the popular Heritage Tree Walk with local author Julian Hight, 2 walks continuing from last year’s Celebrated Women of Frome, and a dance through the cobbled streets on a Silent Disco Tour.
Emma Parker, project officer at Frome Town Council, said: “We’re excited to be working with Frome Walkers are Welcome to bring the Walking Festival back for its 6th year. Over 150 people joined in last year and we’re hoping this year’s programme will once again inspire residents and visitors alike to get outside and celebrate the rich history and nature of Frome and our stunning neighbouring villages.”
