Welcome to Frodsham Festival of Walks 2024

It's our 20th Anniversary! So we've splashed out and bought a smart pair of boots for our new logo, and created some exciting  new volunteer-led walks for everyone to enjoy.

Please join us and be part of this special 20th Anniversary Festival of Walks running from Friday 26 April – Monday 6 May

We have planned over 40 wide-ranging walks - some with special guests, some especially for children and families, dog walks, pub walks, and even a bat walk. There is something for everybody in this celebratory year!

Most of our walks explore the countryside around our local towns and villages, and many have an interesting theme about the local townscape, history, geology or wildlife. New for this year we have a Family Introduction to Castle Park’s Birds, a Wildflower Discovery Walk, a visit to the River Weaver and the Danny, and a Walk on the Wild Side with poet Andrew Rudd.

TV presenter, broadcaster and writer Julia Bradbury joins us to commemorate our 20th anniversary, and to officially open our new community woodland space, Frodsham Woods with our partners The Woodland Trust. Julia will also be at the Community Centre later in the day talking to us about her new book Walk Yourself Happy, and signing copies of it afterwards.

Actress and singer Su Pollard joins us for a Frodsham Pilgrimage, following her own extraordinary 15 day pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima in Portugal.

Old favourites including a Family Treasure Hunt in Alvanley, a Mindfulness Walk on Snidley Moor and Weaver Woodlands and Bluebells, make a welcome return. All walks are led by experienced leaders, volunteers, or representatives from our sponsoring organisations. As always, we are very grateful to the organisations who have sponsored or supported our walks.

This year we have introduced an online booking system via this website. On some walks places are limited, so booking is essential. Please visit your local libraries if you need any help registering for the walks. Library staff will help you if, and when, they can. Please remember that you can also just turn up for any walks and register on arrival if places are still available.

We all look forward to welcoming you to one or more of the many walks and events on offer this year!
