Welcome to the 2024 Corwen Walking Festival

Corwen Walking Festival 2024

The Walking Fesival started in 2012 when121 people came to Corwen to complete a walk. Up to 2019 we built the festival up to have over 300 walks out. We were severely hit by the Pandemic and that stalled what we were trying to achieve and how we could achieve it. Corwen is now a place that people regularly come to and do a walk from. This was always our aim. Like anyone who climbs mountains you know that sometimes you have to replan the journey and relook at new goals and aims.

In 2024 we tried to again build on what had been achieved but on a smaller scale but we have realised that doing anything even on this scale is probbly not possible and we have therefore had to reloook at what we can offer.

Corwen is still changing and developing. The New Indian restaurant has just reopened and we have the very exciting plans for the Owain Glyndwr Hotel and Corwen will alwasy be a destinaion that we believe is a tremendous place that you can walk from. Pen Y Pigyn, Liberty Hall and the whole of the Berwyn are magical and we would recomend them to all.

However we have to be realistic about what we can do with the resources that we have. This year and going forward as we relook at how we take Walking from Corwen forward we will just be offering a couple of walks. The Walking Festival will take place on the 31st August 2024 and we will offer two walks one to Liberty Hall and one to Moel Fferna. We will continue to offer walks on the first Saturday after the bank holiday weekend as we head into the future.

We would like to thank everyone who has been part of the Walking Festival over the past thirteen years and hope that you will celbrate with us by joining one of our two walks in 2024.
