Events, Workshops and Guided Walks


Why not come along to the High Weald Walking Festival 14th - 22nd September 2019? I shall be leading a Creative Writing Walk on Saturday 14th September - details to be confirmed nearer the time.

The High Weald Festival 2018 was a huge success with over 400 attendees and this year's offering should be equally diverse.
