Bristol Walk Fest 2019 will offer more walking choices than ever before when the 7th annual edition takes place from May 1 to 31.

The full programme won’t be viewable online until about April 1 with the printed ‘what’s on’ guide going into circulation from around April 15.

But the team co-ordinating the festival confirmed this week that just short of 260 events will be in the timetable – 100 more than the previous record, set in 2018 – and 80% of them free to join.

Among this year’s new attractions will be a blindfold walk, history tours of Fishponds, Totterdown and Sea Mills, lunchtime ‘netwalks’ for business people, a Bristol statues who’s who trail, wildlife sorties, litter picks, wild food forages and introductions to Nordic walking and a wide variety of walking sports, among them cricket, netball, hockey and tennis.
