North East Lincolnshire Council has joined as a partner to the new Lincolnshire Wolds Outdoor Festival taking place 1 May to 6 June 2021.
The six-week event – which succeeds the Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival which ran for a number of years – aims to showcase the Wolds as a place to explore and enjoy the wide range of outdoor activities it has to offer.
The festival hopes to feature a wide range of outdoor pursuits including walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding, archery, swimming, paddle boarding, golf, pilates, yoga and more.
The council joins colleagues across the Lincolnshire Wolds including East Lindsey District Council, West Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service, British Mountaineering Council, Heritage Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire County Council and the Ramblers, who are collaboratively developing the festival.
Local businesses, groups and activity providers in North East Lincolnshire who would like to host an activity during the festival period should contact Deborah Cooper in the tourism team on [email protected].
Councillor Callum Procter, portfolio holder for tourism, heritage and culture, said: “This is a great opportunity for North East Lincolnshire to work with our Lincolnshire partners and be part of a big outdoor festival. The event fits really well with our own aims for tourism and encourages people to enjoy the outdoors and be more active.”
