Hosting an Event
Walking festivals are growing in popularity, with over 100 held in the UK annually promoting walking and outdoor experiences. The Walking East Yorkshire Festival provides us with a great opportunity to extend our visitor season, with September being one of the peak months for walking enthusiasts.
Whilst the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail provides the main hook for walking in our region, there are also routes into this trail which attract non-hiking holiday makers such as the many shorter circular and linear routes passing through the towns, nature reserves, coastal villages and rolling hills of East Yorkshire which can be found on Walking the Riding. We can also tempt the less energetic explorer with a mix of outdoor experiences such as: themed tours of historic towns and sites, boat trips, foraging, bushcraft, archaeology focused tours, food trails and visits to local producers, outdoor YOGA and hands on experiences.
The walking festival provides you with the ideal opportunity to promote your business to a wider audience by creating new products and experiences that are attractive to outdoor enthusiasts. Complete the attached form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further.
