Welcome

We are a family run business that develops and delivers walking events with a creative twist. Our walks and ‘walkshops’ (walking workshops) are mainly artist led, depending on the event you choose there will be a mix of drawing, learning and making. Our focus is to be creative using walking as the art form. Participants come and explore an area, learn something new and develop skills. Group participation is fun and stimulating and you will be part of a walking performance. ‘The art is in taking part‘ which we call ‘walking creatively‘.

Although being outdoors among trees is one of the healthiest things we can all do – we are adhering to the Government’s advice of restricting small gatherings and have cancelled or suspended bookings on our walks and walkshops.  We will review the situation at Easter.

Ticket pricing: We have installed WP Event manager as our main ticketing platform – this means that you do not pay a booking fee when you purchase a ticket through our website.  We absorb the transaction cost. We also use Eventbrite and Funzing as ticket booking platforms, both take a commission via a booking fee which is why the final ticket price may appear higher than that we advertise. As these booking fees are dynamic we are unable to establish the fee and publish it. We are charged a banking fee by PayPal for processing all ticket purchases, however, we absorb this cost.   This means that paying through WP Event ManagerPayPal for your tickets will be at the price we advertise, and you won’t be charged a booking fee. For further details on Offers, pricing and refunds please see here.

We are building our website, so bear with us as we get our on-line presence ‘ship-shape’.
