After extensive discussions we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year's High Weald Walking Festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a team we've explored all the options for running a socially-distanced event, but have concluded it is safest to postpone and focus on building an even bigger and better Festival for Autumn 2021.
Create your own self-guided Festival! In the meantime, we are putting together a range of downloadable routes to help you create your very own self-guided Walking Festival. The High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has a whopping 2,395km of Rights of Way, so whether you're a seasoned hiker or a lockdown newbie, there is room for everyone to explore safely.
We may even create some 'virtual' video walks, so make sure you're signed up to our mailing list to receive updates over the next couple of months!
All the best, The High Weald Walking Festival Team
