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‘.
We are proud founders of the Award-winning Urban Tree Festival
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. However, we are now offering virtual tours on-line – we look forward entertaining you at home.

Ticket pricing and bookshop purchases: 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 occasionally use Eventbrite as a ticket booking platform, this takes 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.
For our sales through the bookshop, if you choose to pay other than by PayPal, we have a Stripe account, and the charges for which we absorb. All shop sales will come with an additional postage and packing charge, which may change depending on quantity of items purchased and the destination to which they will be sent.
During COVID lockdown we offer discretionary priced tickets in which we provide a PayPal Donate button – we absorb the PayPal processing charges.
This means that paying through WP Event Manager & PayPal 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’.
