Kington Walks 2015

The dates of next year's festival are: September 15th-18th 2016. Full details of the 2016 program will be on the website at the end of April, with the brochure being available in late May.

This, the fourth year of Kington Walking Festival, was another resounding success with a record number of participants. 531 places were sold on the walks, just over 80% take up of all places offered, and the events saw a 70% take up of tickets. Although most participants came from the Midlands area visitors from as far as Surrey, Glamorgan and Yorkshire also took part and enjoyed themselves. Many of the walks sold out, some quite quickly, so remember to book early if you can for 2016.

Good weather, great walks and events, and a very enjoyable opening evening were all favourably received by the participants with the walks feedback generally being excellent. The hard working committee is already putting together an exciting and varied program for 2016 to include some walk repeats from previous festivals as well as some brand new ones. Since its inception in 2011 the Walking Festival has gone from strength to strength and the fifth anniversary festival in 2016 promises again to bring a range of walks and events to suit all tastes.

The winner of the Eight Peaks Challenge, collecting all the marker points and finishing in a time of 3 hours, 12 minutes and 40 seconds were Tony Redfern and Vince Playdon. Click here to see all the times.
