Taking place between Saturday 8 and Sunday 16 September, the festival brings over 100 walks and activities to the East Riding, putting the area’s wonderful landscape and rich heritage on show to all age groups and abilities.

The festival culminates in a trek across the Yorkshire Wolds Way, one of the 15 National Trails in England and Wales, a 79-mile walking route through idyllic chalk landscapes from Hessle to Filey, the Humber to the beach.

Councillor Richard Burton, said: “The festival gives residents the opportunity to get out and see our local landscape from a new perspective that they may never have seen before.”
