Event description


Welcome to the Bristol Walk Fest Proposal Form

How to open the form

Click the REGISTER tab to the right hand side of this screen then click on CHECKOUT.

Register with Eventbrite

You will be asked for you name and email to register with Eventbrite

Before you complete the form please take a few minutes to read the following guidance-

Plan your walk

Walks can be completely new and original or you might use existing routes or walks that you have planned to deliver anyway. Consider the shape of the walk. Although most walks are circular, linear and figure-of-eight walks are good if people are moving at different paces. The start and finish of walks should be easily reached on foot, or be near a bus stop or railway station. Be as inclusive as possible. If you are stuck for ideas there are over 100 Bristol pre-mapped walk routes on the Ramblers website, and use the walk finder.

Risk assessment

All walks must be risk assessed. Once in the planning stage and once a few days before the actual walk. Click on the link to see a copy of our generic risk assessment

Mapping the walk

Draft your route-using a map before you set out and amend as you go round. Take a copy of the risk assessment. Note the start and if different finish postcode. Include key features such as landmarks, disabled toilets, cafes, places of shelter, bus stops, stiles, slopes, inclines and uneven ground. Estimate how long it would take your participants to complete and the distance in miles. Consider difficulties for people in wheelchairs or with buggies and potential dangers. What happens if people struggle or in case of emergency – is there a quick way back to the start.

Grade of walk

Please use your best judgement when deciding what grade the walk is. Although not perfect, this does offer a helpful guide to potential walkers.

Personal Health and Safety

Dress appropriately for the weather, wear suitable supportive footwear and don’t walk if you feel unwell. Take a mobile phone, water, personal medication and always walk with someone. If at any time you feel in danger or unsafe, stop what you are doing and return to where you feel safe.


All walk leaders must have personal insurance or be insured by their employer or organisation to lead a walk


Our aim is to offer the majority of walks for FREE, but we understand some proposals will require a fee or donation to cover costs. If you are proposing a walk which has a cost please consider offering concessions or a Bristol Walk Fest 2017 discount.


Will you require people to book in advance and do you have a maximum number? Walks providers will be responsible for taking their own bookings and/or payment if required. We recommend using an event booking system such as Eventbrite.

Leading the walk

You will need to identify walk leaders for each walk you offer. At least 2 are advised – front and back - and definitely no less than 1 to 20 walkers.

Walk details

Decide on the time and day you would like to offer your walk, this should reflect your audience and if possible offer the walk on more than one occasion on different days and times to broaden your reach. We are particularly interested in offering more after work and evening walks. If we are unable to offer your 1st choice we will contact you to discuss other options. Please note if you would like to offer a different walk you will need to complete a separate form.


Please note all proposal forms need to be submitted before Monday 30th January 2017
