2020 sees the launch of walking trails across the region in celebration of the Northern Saints. The theme is being used as a destination development and marketing initiative to attract visitors as well as creating new leisure opportunities for residents.
The project is set within the context of the region’s considerable Christian heritage but will appeal to those of other faiths and to those simply looking for their own personal spirituality, peace and tranquility. Durham Cathedral will be at the centre of the trails recognising its role as a destination for pilgrims. The trails will appeal to those who like the challenge of long distance walking, others may wish to dip in and out of shorter sections visiting attractions, enjoying landscapes and sampling hospitality en route.
Culture Durham’s Events Forum is holding a free half-day session where attendees can learn more about the project and the opportunities it represents for partnership working, creative thinking and new ideas. Whether you’re a sole practitioner, a community group or a professional arts/cultural organisation there will be ways of being involved.
If you would like to take part in this event, which will include presentations, workshops and networking opportunities, please book here.
