Ulverston WalkFest 2019

Saturday 27th April - Monday 6th May 2019



Fantastic comments from our 2018 Ulverston WalkFest

Many thanks to our participants and walk leaders for making 2018 our most successful yet.  Helped by amazingly good weather we again exceeded the number of participants and income this year.  We received lots of great feedback during our walks and we are including the three comments received by email.

Ulverston WalkFest 2019 will be our 20th anniversary.  We are planning walks and events themed around the number 20 so keep in touch and we hope to see you again next year.

I just want to say thank you for the wonderful experiences I’ve had this weekend.  I did Coniston on Monday too. I loved every second of both days and more importantly given my pre walk apprehension felt very well looked after. 

My favourite was our walk on Sunday and I thoroughly enjoyed the anecdotes and the social side. Everyone was lovely and Dudley’s water colours made me feel like I was walking with Wainwright!
I’ve decided to walk more and I’ll be more adventurous, venturing further than Hoad and the Flans. I’ll be booking on some National Park walks and joining Barrow Ramblers. 

Please let the walking festival committee know how greatly appreciated all their hard work is, even if you only encourage one person like me it is so worth it. I can’t wait until next year and I’ll probably do one each day rather than going to the gym!

Best wishes and thank you once again,

Sarah Holmes, Ulverston


I just wanted to email to say what a fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable walking festival 2018 was.  I can appreciate that an awful lot of work went into the festival by everyone involved. It certainly was a varied, well thought out event with something for everyone.


I myself enjoyed Martin Cooper's Mountain Rescue Talk, the Dunnerdale Horseshoe, Caves, Falls and Fells Walk and Ulverston Cemetery Walk.


Looking forward to next year.


Best wishes to you all

Helen Rawlinson




I just want to thank you, Linda and the organising committee of Walkfest 2018 for a thoroughly well planned and executed Walkfest. Personally I had a great 9 days of walking and sometimes found it difficult to choose which walk to do. The weather was particularly well organised! Having been involved in organising events for various volunteer organisations I know how much work  is required, so well done everyone. 

I have met new friends and (by and large!) enjoyed everyone's company and enjoyed the walk 'banter'. Hopefully I will be back next year to walk with you all in 2019.

 Best regards

 Dave from Derbyshire
