The Big Walk will be setting off from Morecambe Bay on 16th May 2018, with a promenade walk and community fete to mark the occasion and celebrate all that is positive about Morecambe.
People can join in from 4:30pm, when community groups, locals and a band will be gathering at the Jetty for a promenade walk.
From 5pm-7pm there will be a Big Community Fete at the Jetty opposite The Midland Hotel, with 30 community stalls, and activities, information and fun, including a bouncy castle, pebble painting, and wonderful entertainment from a variety of great acts on the Melodrome stage.
Following The Big Community Fete, four teams of walkers will set off from Morecambe, the geographical heart of the UK, for The Big Walk, a journey across the UK celebrating community spirit. The Big Walk is an idea from The Eden Project made possible by the National Lottery. The walkers will finish The Big Walk by arriving back in their home towns on 3 June in time for The Big Lunch.
