Welcome to the Festival

Monday 21 - Sunday 27 September 2020

The popular Walking East Yorkshire Festival is taking on a virtual role this year, to allow participants to enjoy activities at their leisure and within their own social bubble.

To celebrate the festival, and showcase the wonderful landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds and the wide range of activities across the region, we will be launching a brand new activity every single day from Monday 21 - Sunday 27 September for you to discover. Make sure you visit the site each day to check out what you can do next...

Competition Time: Fancy winning an annual pass to Sewerby Hall & Gardens? All you have to do is log on every day and find the little walking boot icon, which will be hidden on the site. What colour is the boot today? Simply make a list of the colours that appear on each day and send it to info@eyevents.co.uk before midnight on Monday 28 September. The five winners will be notified on Tuesday 29 September. Good Luck! (Please note, the colour of the boots will change every day – so be sure to log on from Monday 21).

We hope you enjoy the festival, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again next year ‘in person’.
