Still Walking Autumn Festival

Love going for walks?

The Still Walking Festival’s walks positively encourage you to get out and enjoy what Birmingham has to offer. The guided walks designed for residents but enjoyed equally by visitors offer absorbing sights into the varied character, history and culture of the city.

I’ve had the pleasure of discovering parts of Digbeth that had previously eldued me during last year’s festival, thanks to Ben Waddinton, a local historian who curates this walking festival.

As keen fan Deborah Broomfield testifies, ‘the guides are historians, architects and photographers; enthusiastic specialists who share their knowledge through developing walks in which members of the public can participate.”

Still Walking events have an open approach to what walking can be about and in this digital age it sure is good to get out. Step away from that laptop but only after you have had a look at what’s on offer this weekend.

Birmingham’s festival of walking continues this weekend until Sun 22 September. For more information email or tweet @stillwalkers
