Stokies Stride Out walking festival is about getting local residents outdoors and exploring our fascinating city on foot. Autumn is a great time to walk through our varied urban landscape, fantastic green spaces and amazing industrial scenery. Stoke-on-Trent has so much to offer; we hope the festival will help you discover some of the city’s hidden gems.

All the walks are led by knowledgeable local guides, including historians, naturalists, musicians and entertainers who will make sure the walks are interesting and fun. Listen to our storyteller, sing along with our ukulele band, learn how to orienteer…  and so much more.

The festival is also an opportunity for you to meet new people and make new friends, while enjoying all the health and fitness benefits of taking a walk in the fresh air. Plus you can find out about walking groups who meet regularly in your local area.
