Plus our dog friendly walks will ensure that those pups can have a good old run around and tire themselves out.

The festival features walks led across four districts in Lincolnshire: North Kesteven, South Kesteven, Boston Borough and South Holland where there are so many walks and activities for you to explore. There is a very special announcement ahead of this years festival; find out more below…..
