Each year volunteers from Waveney & Blyth Arts organise a programme of short guided walks that each highlight a particular part of our patch and celebrate connections with creative people from the past or present day – or provide an opportunity to be creative ‘en route’.
The extraordinary creative richness of this area is reflected in the fact that since 2011 over seventy unique walks have taken place – each one focused on different creative connections.
Details of 2019 walks, some connected to our exploration of the world of Bugs & Blossoms and the threats they face, will be posted here by Easter 2019.
