Bristol Walk Fest 2019 - Event Submission Form
Please use this form to notify us of a walk or event that you would like to be included in Bristol Walk Fest 2019.

If you would like to submit a different walk or event, please repeat the process on a new form.

If you need to change the details about your walk or event, you can edit this form after you’ve submitted it.

It will take roughly 10 minutes to complete, if you have all the information to hand.

Before you complete this form please take a few minutes to read the guidance note for walk/event organisers which can be found on our website at

We’ve three simple criteria for events - it's legal (organisers must take responsibility for all relevant insurances, licences and health and safety requirements), it's in Bristol (all events must take place in and around Bristol during the festival month from 1 to 31 May 2019) and it's walk related (not centred around fundraising, open to the public and preferably free).

Events can be walks, tours, workshops, talks, family events, taster sessions or just about anything else featuring walking in some form. They can be around the themes of arts, education, food, sport, history, architecture, wildlife and nature, or anything else a walk could cover.

The deadline for walks/events to be included in this year's festival programme is Friday, 1 March 2019, 5pm.

This year the festival is being coordinated by Active Ageing Bristol, a collaboration between Bristol Sport Foundation, The Anchor Society and St Monica Trust. Working in partnership with Age UK Bristol with funding from Active Ageing Bristol and the Travelwest Fund.
