What's On

This year the Spring Festival takes place from the 11th to the 19th of May and the Autumn event from the 5th to the 11th of October. The Spring Festival also includes the popular Walk the Wight in support of local hospice, Mountbatten.

The 25th year features an array of new walks and treks, as well as some old favourites from over the years. Most walks are free or with a donation to charity and led by volunteers and local businesses keen to share with you the Island’s varied landscape, thriving wildlife and rich heritage.

Choose a route to suit your ability, be it a heart-racing hike, gentle stroll, or walks that the whole family can enjoy - there is something for everyone. The Walking Festival is a friendly coming together in the great outdoors for all ages, offering a chance to meet new people, learn and discover the many wonders of the Island.

Head over for a day or stay for longer; with over 500 miles of footpaths across beautiful countryside and dramatic coastlines, once you’re across there will be no stopping you.
