Good news - the programme is out now -  (10th April 2015)

The Bristol Walking Festival runs throughout May. The UK's largest walking festival offers more than 160 walks and events, including opportunities to find out about Bristol in riot (1831) and to explore with architectural historian Tim Mowl, to forage and to try Nordic walking, to discover Arnos Vale cemetery and Leigh Woods at night. Something for everyone!

The Festival programme is available from libraries or online in two formats – a book-style Issuu document and a PDF. The PDF can be saved for viewing offline and has a clickable index – i.e. click on the number of the walk you’re interested in and you’ll be taken to the relevant page.
The PDf format programme is below
