Greater Manchester Walking Festival
by Jonathan Reed
We're absolutely delighted to have worked on this year's Greater Manchester Walking Festival, which runs from 1st - 31st May and offers over 400 free guided walks.
The festival is organised by Greater Manchester Moving in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester. They approached Sunny Thinking to create the branding for the festival and design a whole range of marketing communications to promote it including the festival brochure, promotional literature, posters and outdoor advertising. We also created a simple website and a bank of digital graphics for use on email marketing and social media in partnership with our PR partners at Scribble.
Are you a stomper, marcher, wanderer, pusher, ambler, moocher, strider or stroller? However you like to walk, if you're like us you'll love nothing better than getting outside, exploring the local area and connecting with your friends and families.
As part of the ambition to make Greater Manchester the first ‘Walking Region’ in the UK, the festival is a fantastic opportunity to showcase and publicise the great walking opportunities and groups there are in Greater Manchester. The festival aims to encourage people to walk more and more often, whatever their background and however they choose.
The festival runs throughout May, National Walking Month.
