Still Walking Festival
Sept 2018 - Sept 2019
Welcome to the Still Walking festival programme for 2018 - 2019
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.
We’re delighted to be working in association with Roundhouse Birmingham and have been commissioned to create a series of new walks in the lead up to their opening in Summer next year. Read about the ‘Victorian Rotunda’ here. These will be all new walks with guides you may have met on our recent programmes.
We still have 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.
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.
In addition to the reruns of classic Still Walking Festival events are a selection from the 40 odd events that SW director Ben Waddington has been commissioned to create over the last 9 years. Our most enduring question is when we will re-run certain sold-out walks from outside the festival… we don’t have a regular programme of re-runs so this could be your chance to revisit a long lost walk.
