11/05/2024 – 26/05/2024

The 2024 festival launches on Saturday 11th May and we’re delighted to be hosted once again at the beautiful Thornham Estate with a discovery tour of the estate’s natural history; a tasty stroll foraging the estate’s woodlands; and a step back in time along a 900-year old Drove Road.

Over the following 2-weeks we’ll explore every corner of Suffolk. We re-visit Orford Ness – an island full of secrets, enjoy more mindfulness moments in an ancient wood, and relax again on a river trip before a gentle amble. New for 2024, we venture into the vast Broads National Park, turn a hand to creative writing on a Haiku walk, and join Ambling African Women, a new walking group based in Ipswich, for a guided walk along the Sailors Path at Snape.

The full festival programme will be released along with ticket sales on 1st March 2024. Follow the festival on Facebook for latest news.
