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.
In 2018 there will be walks on the theme of River Dwellers, as well as walks connected to the Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail.
For further details or to make a booking contact [email protected] or call 07415168806.
Ahead of our main program we have linked up with the Broads Outdoor Festival ……..
There are many more events that celebrate
this area where the Northfolk and Southfolk
meet and intermingle, including the annual
Sculpture Trail at Raveningham Centre. So
be inspired, get active and join the fun.
We are delighted to be working closely with
Deaf Connexions, Southwold Arts Festival,
the Broads Authority, Raveningham.
Our first walk of the year takes place at Burgh Castle.
