Purbeck Festival – WALKS for ALL

  • Share

The Purbeck Nordic Walking Festival  will be inviting non polers to join in the fun this year.

It’s all part  of our new strategy to encourage more people to enjoy walking with our qualified Instructors and sociable groups. We recognise that not everybody is ready to master poles and feel that they should not miss out on the other aspects of what we do says Martin Christie of NWUK. That’s why we are launching WALX a sister brand that will offer the same quality and service but be open to all.

At Purplebeck 2019 the following WALX will be open to everyone
