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‘.

If you would like us to develop a walking event tailored to your needs read more here about our pricing, or if you would like to collaborate in developing one, then please read more here and contact us via this form.


Ticket pricing: We 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. Where we can, we offer ticket booking directly via PayPal.  We are charged a banking fee by PayPal for processing all ticket purchases, however, we absorb this cost.   This means that paying through PayPal for your tickets will be at the price we advertise, and you won’t be charged a booking fee. As these booking fees are dynamic we are unable to establish the fee and publish it. Please note that unless stated there will be a booking fee added to the ticket price. 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’.
