2021: Waterways Wellbeing Walks

The free Waterways Wellbeing Walks series starts in late June

Join local artist Genevieve Rudd on a relaxed creative walk with inspiring arts-based activities to enjoy along the route. The guided creative walk series will support you to connect and take notice of the landscape, whilst developing creative ways to express yourself and try new things. Each walk will be themed around a different natural element of the Waterways, such as exploring the habitats, wildlife and plant-life

All creative activity materials are provided, but participants are recommended to bring a camera phone or camera with them if they have one

Please come dressed for the weather – such as sun hat, warm jacket or umbrella, depending on the forecast – the coastal weather can be changeable!

The meeting place is at the entrance of the Waterways Boating Lake cafe (on North Drive, close to the public loos situated opposite Salisbury Road, Great Yarmouth)

The series is led in partnership with The Waterways, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and funded by National Heritage Lottery Fund

Pre-booking is essential on Eventbrite. Each workshop will take place at 10:30am to 12:30pm on the following dates:
