15th - 24th
September 2023

The 2023 Festival will run from 15th to 24th September 2023

Details of the main programme for the Festival are now available on the website

Booking open on 28th June (21st June for Friends)


The 2022 Festival was a great success - don't take our word for it but listen to the views of our attendees: "The talks were brilliant"; "Well organised and a friendly reception"; "Good variety of walks and talks"; "Extremely well organised and planned events"; "Good company". 100% of the respondents to our survey said they would recommend the Festival to a friend.

Our 2023 programme promises to be just as varied.

If you would like to support the Festival, and get early access to our tickets when they go on sale in June, please consider becoming a Friend of the Festival.  You can join by following this link

Once again we would not be able to put on the Festival without the help of our many supporters and our thanks go in advance for 2023 to: Richmond Town Council, Purple Creative, Altberg, Millgate House, Swaledale Outdoor Club, The Station and the many other sponsors, accommodation providers and advertisers.  And of course many thanks to our wonderful volunteers who will be leading the walks programme and supporting the book events.

We hope to see you in Richmond this September.
