‘There was nowhere to go but everywhere’  Jack  Kerouac


In collaboration with The Parks Trust, we're delighted to offer this literary walk to conclude the Walking Festival 2024.


Join Duncan Minshull at 2pm on May 12th for an enlightening stroll  around Campbell Park and beyond, weaving in fascinating stories from his latest collection, Globetrotting: Writers Walk The World.

Hear from those who have walked parts of the seven continents, from Charles Darwin, DH Lawrence, and Katharine Mansfield to William Boyd, Michèle Roberts and Helen Garner. Duncan will transport you to Paris and to Rome, to the frozen wastes of Antarctica, to the pilgrim paths of Japan; capturing the joys and hardships of foot travel, and pose the question of why we choose to set off in the first place.

 The walk begins and ends at The Parks Trust in Campbell Park, and will take approximately 90 minutes, covering around 3 miles. Please come prepared for the walk, allowing for the weather and the conditions.
