Survey Problem & Lost Property

    Post Festival Survey

You will have received our online survey form, and your feedback helps us improve the festival each year.

We are aware of a problem with the survey which prevents selection of more than walk number. If you did go on more than one walk, please select one and then give the other numbers in the comments box.

Many thanks for your help with this.

    Lost Property

A wine glass and a bottle opener were left after the evening event. If you wish to claim either item, please contact chair@corshamwalkingfestival.org.uk

Quiz Supper Sold Out!

Yes, it really has completely sold out. If you are feeling rather miserable about this, ask the Pound to put you on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

If you need to cancel your booking for a festival event, please inform the Pound Arts Centre (01249 701628) and if your place is filled you will receive a refund.

For last minute cancellations please call Festival HQ on – 07949 122119. Thank you.

We want your photos!

We would be eternally grateful if you could send us your favourite festival photos to:

publicity@corshamwalkingfestival.org.uk.

If using a phone camera – best to hold it horizontally apparently.

And if you could shoot mini videos – perhaps friends and family talking about their festival experience, that would be utterly fantastic, just a few seconds will do. Of course, we don’t want your walks to be held up while snapping – but the start, finish and any breaks might be good opportunities.

So get creative, use your imagination – and most of all let it be fun!

The fabulous folk at Corsham Television will glue it all together and make a little promotional film about the Corsham Walking Festival.

Thank you everyone for all your support!
