Gower Walking Festival Association

It is with much regret that the Gower Walking Festival Association’s (GWFA) committee has to announce that this year’s festival will not go ahead. The loss of key members of the organising committee due to illness and changes in personal circumstances has meant that insufficient volunteers remain to guarantee the delivery of a safe festival. Nobody can feel more sorry about this than the GWFA committee members.

We are though aware that many walkers will have already planned a visit to Gower this summer and our message to them is PLEASE STILL COME. The stunning Gower peninsula is still there to be walked and enjoyed and there are many ways to do this. For example you may want to download the ‘This is Gower‘ App to your phone or iPad which will enable you to gain information about the history, wildlife, geology, flora and fauna of the region as you walk. There is  plenty of information available locally about walks. The experienced staff at Swansea Tourist Information Centre have several leaflets on self guided walking, as well as a great deal of information about other activities to be enjoyed. The National Trust shop at Rhossili also has several leaflets about both circular and linear walks

Then, there is always next year. We have every reason to hope that the festival will return in 2016, stronger and more varied than ever. So, please keep this website in your favourites and continue to visit us for updates.

Thank you very much for your support and interest in the festival and we hope to see you next year.
