Festival 2019


A reminder that the Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Corsham Walking Festival will be held this Thursday (4 October 2018) at 1900 in The Methuen Arms.  This is an occasion to celebrate the success of Festival 2018 and to discuss plans for  Festival 2019 (to be held over the weekend of 7 - 9 June 2019). 

We are still seeking nominations to fill a number of vacancies on the Committee - but please don't let this put you off from coming to the AGM!  The Festival is put on for your benefit and we really would like to hear your ideas. 
 

Walking Opportunities


The Corsham area provides walking opportunities all year round - whether self guided or with a local group.  The Corsham Bookshop and the Tourist Information Centre in Corsham High Street both have a small selection of booklets of local walks available for purchase and in addition there are a number of on line resources.

A number of national and local groups walk regularly in Corsham and the surrounding area and welcome new walkers.  If you do not walk regularly with the relevant group, it is advisable to contact them beforehand so they are aware of likely numbers on the walk.  More information - including contact details - can be found on the Corsham Walking Festival website or downloaded here
