We have got some great walks and talks already programmed, and we are adding to our heritage events all the time, so please check back regularly.
Time travel with local experts on these walks into the glass making past. Several old festival favourites, although all with new material researched since their last outing, are joined by a number of newly devised heritage tours including a visit to the Dial Glasshouse and an appreciation of the area’s public house history. From pointing out poignant points on the landscape to pointing out where landlords pulled pints, this year’s heritage walks are a must.
Except where otherwise indicated, all walks take approximately one and a half hours and cost £3.50 Adults/£1.00 children. Tickets can be booked online or at the Festival Office during the Glass Festival, or simply turn up at the start of the walk and pay (but note that numbers are limited).
