Fal River Autumn Walking Festival 2012 launches at The Nare

From 20 August 2012

Cornwall's walking festival, full of great Cornish walks, returns for Autumn 2012.

The Fal River Autumn Walking Festival, featuring some of the best walks in Cornwall, is back for its second year.

This year's festival, sponsored once again by The Nare, will run from Friday, October 19 to Sunday, November 4, taking in the very best walks from the Roseland to the Helford.

Throughout the 17-day festival, over 60 guided and self-guided walks will feature around the beautiful Fal River, from the Roseland peninsula in the east, to Helford in the west and as far inland as Truro.

Festival Director, Toby Budd is delighted by the support that this event has received.

'In 2011 we launched the walking festival with the objective of bringing more visitors into Cornwall during the autumn months, as well as enabling locals to explore and learn more about this beautiful part of the county,' he said.

'We've been overwhelmed with support for 2012 and are keen to get other organisations involved. We're looking for people who would like to share their love and knowledge of the area through leading a walk – with training on leading walks to be provided through a free training day in September.'

Get involved

For anyone interested in submitting a guided walk, there is no cost and the walk will be promoted through the festival’s programme, website, social media, press releases and various other marketing being co-ordinated by Eventy – Marketing & PR.

The self-guided walks will be enjoyed throughout the festival as well as throughout the year – designed to be undertaken at any time by downloading the walking instructions and directions from the walking section of the Fal River Cornwall website.

Alongside The Nare as title sponsor, the festival is supported by Fal River Cornwall, Cornwall Ferries Ltd, South West Coast Paths, the RNLI, the National Trust, AONB, Falmouth BID, Eventy - Marketing & PR, West Briton and BBC Radio Cornwall.

Sponsored by The Nare, this year’s Fal River Autumn Walking Festival will take place from Friday 19th October ending Sunday 4th November, with the support of Fal River, South West Coast Paths, the RNLI, the National Trust, AONB and Falmouth BID
