We have also introduced a number of tickets for children on the weekend walks, and for children under five on some of the mid-week walks too. For children between 5 and 16 years the tickets are half price at £4, while children under five can join free.

Check the event type on the walk you are interested in and if you see Family Friendly in the description, tickets for children will be available via the booking link to Eventbrite.

Featured Event

Our first featured event is now live with The Rogues Shanty Band who will be playing at Porlock Village Hall on Saturday, 30th September between 7.30pm and 10pm.

The Rogues are a local band made up of men, women and children who are all passionate about performing and singing, so get ready for a Shanty band with a difference!

We’re looking forward to seeing many of you at the Festival.
