Interested in working with the Walk Fest Team?

Eastbourne and Lewes Walk Fest is primarily funded and entirely organised by Eastbourne Borough and Lewes District Councils tourism department. Each year we thrive to build the festival into something even bigger and better than the year before, and we would love some help along the way. There are so many ways, big or small, that you or your organisation can be a partner of the Walk Fest.


Leading a walk or putting on an event

Perhaps you can offer up a charismatic walk leader to put on an inspiring walk for people to sign up for. A walking festival is nothing without a fantastic line-up of walks. You may even be able to put on an event during the festival that focuses on human health, marine or wildlife, or something else that would appeal to visitors and residents of the town. If you’ve got an idea, visit the Walk Leader page.


Helping us with a prize giveaway

We reach out to our walkers, past and present, through our social media channels among other ways. One of our favourite ways to engage with walking enthusiasts is by offering up prize giveaways. Last year we had a fantastic array of prizes on offer including dog photoshoots, meals for two, theatre tickets and gift vouchers for walkers to pick up a pair of new walking boots. It is a great way to get some publicity for your business or organisation whilst at the same time helping the walk fest reach out to a wider audience.


Donating or sponsoring the Walk Fest

Each year that the Walk Fest grows, we aim to put on more events and reach out to more people. All donations and sponsorships help greatly towards our printing costs, distribution, walk leader training, equipment and staffing. Any donation or sponsorship you can provide whether its big or small will go a huge way to the continuity and success of the Eastbourne and Lewes Walk Fest. Your business or organisation will benefit massively from promotion to hundreds of our followers and walkers and we will be sure to promote this as our way of saying thank you.
