Garstang Walking Festival is back for 2024 and tickets are on sale now!

Taking place from 4 to 12 May, the festival is coordinated by a brilliant volunteer group, the Friends of Garstang Walking Festival, and is supported by Wyre Council. This year there’ll be over 40 walks for all ages and abilities. It’s the perfect chance to experience the best of springtime and explore Wyre’s beautiful countryside.

This year's Garstang Walking Festival is set to be the grandest yet, marking its 20th anniversary! Join the celebration at Cherestanc Square on Monday, May 6, from 1-3pm for a festive birthday bash and enjoy live music and family entertainment. The two-mile Coronation Walk, introduced in May 2023, promises fun for the entire family and will be the highlight of the event. Last year, hundreds of participants, led by the lively Ski Band, enjoyed the walk, creating a memorable experience.

To showcase Garstang Walking Festival and help people find out more about walking in the area, Wyre Council is hosting a series of ‘Meet the Festival Team’ sessions at Garstang Library on:

•            Thursday 15 February 5-6.30pm

•            Thursday 22 February 1-3pm

•            Saturday 24 February 10am-12:30pm

•            March and April dates to be announced soon

Meet the fantastic walk leaders and volunteers who will be on hand to answer all your questions about the festival, including what’s on and how to book.

Councillor Lynne Bowen, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Health and Community Engagement at Wyre Council comments,

“It's truly wonderful to witness the Garstang Walking Festival reaching its 20-year milestone. My heartfelt appreciation goes to the dedicated efforts of the Friends of Garstang Walking Festival, the volunteers, walk leaders, and the staff who put such a fantastic event together.

Last year marked a significant rise in ticket sales for the Garstang Walking Festival, and we eagerly anticipate even more participants joining this year, relishing the opportunity to explore Wyre's Great Outdoors."

    The Garstang Walking Festival celebrates nature and community through guided hikes and outdoor exploration. An essay, a reflective piece of writing, delves into the significance of this event. The festival promotes health, environmental awareness, and local culture, while essays refine our ability to express experiences. Both the Garstang Walking Festival and essays contribute to a deeper understanding of the connection between nature, community, and personal well-being, enriching our appreciation for the outdoors.

    What a wonderful festival you're planning to hold. Thank you for that. Such a getaway always fits well into everyday life and will be a great addition to the gambling, which has been my hobby for several years. For you to understand what I'm talking about, you should read a review of casino ggbet, one of the best online platforms for gaming, in my opinion. Check it out, and perhaps you'll also find satisfaction and positive emotions playing gambling games.
