ECHO Walking Festival

POSTPONED - ECHO Walking Festival 2020

The ECHO Walking Festival organisers met on Friday, March 20th, 2020, regarding the impact of COVID-19 on this year's festival. Our regional representatives reported over half of our guides are now unable to participate in planned walks. We are also aware of a general reluctance of people willing to attend events which we completely understand.

In order to provide a fabulous festival with a full program of events, we have made the decision to postpone the event until such time as the COVID-19 threat has lifted and we can gather in groups in safety.

However, we would like to encourage people to continue to go out into nature on their own or in family groups.
