Welcome to Kington Walks 2015

We really hoped you enjoyed the 2014 festival as much as we did, thank you all for coming along. The dates for next year are September 17th-20th 2015. We have already started planning for it and hope to have the website ready by the end of April and the brochure ready not long after that.

We have left the information, walks, events, etc. from last year's festival so you can see what sort of things you can expect to enjoy.

Some of the best festivals happen in the smallest towns. Think of Hay – population c 2000 - and literature. Now think of Kington - just up the road from Hay and with a similar population - and walking.

Kington sits on the frontier between the green and pleasant land of Herefordshire, famous for apples, beef and beer, and the wild uplands of Wales. It is perfect walking country for the tough and the lazy alike. Bracing ascents alternate with strolls to ancient pubs drowsing by rapid rivers, and the views are sublime. More long-distance paths converge on the town than almost anywhere else in the UK.

Kington Walks, our walking festival returns for its third year, already a firm fixture for all who love the great outdoors and enjoy walking festivals. One of the great walking festivals 2014.

In addition to a varied programme of guided and self-led walks in the Kington Walking Festival, non-walkers or post-walkers can enjoy a programme of supporting events including a Goulash evening and a gig by the wonderful Remi Harris Trio, a young contemporary gypsy jazz trio. Still in his early 20s, Remi is fast becoming known as one of the UK's top gypsy jazz guitar players.

We are holding the annual photography competition with prizes, open to all walkers and the chance for your photograph to be used in next year's calendar. We will have the calendars from last year's competition ready for sale during this summer and at the festival itself from the hub.

Whichever walk or event you choose the welcome and the scenery are guaranteed. So come and join us for our third Kington walking festival.
