Welcome to the Still Walking festival programme for 2018.

This is our ninth edition and in a break from tradition we are planning a full year of walking, running and cycling activity, rather than our usual annual blip.

The first selection of events to be announced will feature some of our favourite walks from the previous 8 festivals. Of course all the walks are out favourites and that’s why they’re on the programme - but some are just itching to run again.

The second wave - to be announced soon - will be in association with Roundhouse Birmingham and will take place over the next six months… read about the ‘Victorian Rotunda’ here. These will be all new walks with guides you may have met on our recent programmes. There will be our now-traditional Christmas walk and we will follow up with a Still Walking Spring - Summer programme next year, spreading events out a little and giving everyone a bit more breathing space.

Why are we celebrating number 9 and not waiting for ten? Maybe we felt the number 9 has missed out recently in people’s rush to get to number ten. SW has always been about celebrating less obvious aspects of our lives, and we are rarely in that much of a hurry. So we’ve adopted 9 as our new favourite number.

As ever, all events should be booked in advance. Tickets can sell out quickly, so make sure you don’t miss out. See you on the walks!
