FOTNP Walking Festival Update
This year 2017 there will not be a Friends of the North Pennines Walking Festival and instead the Trustees will take some time to consider how to raise funding and plan an approach to running an event in 2018.
We thank you for your support and will keep you informed of our progress along with any information about other future FOTNP events.
The purpose of the festival will be to help local people and visitors to understand and enjoy the landscape of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and to boost the local tourism economy. The walks will cover a variety of subjects including local history, nature and geology. Some walks will cover specialist subjects such as photography, art or specific species of plants and animals. Others may have no specific theme.
