Sidmouth’s walking festival strolls back into action tomorrow (Saturday), showcasing the best the area has to offer.

Together with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the event has swelled and now boasts 23 walks over nine days.

Every day there is a coastal walk, a circular specialist interest walk and a challenge walk to complete the whole of the 40-mile East Devon Way. Tomorrow, walkers will be welcomed at Kennaway House between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

The ribbon will be cut by Alistair Handyside from the SW Tourism Alliance and delicious food will be served by Devon Kitchen Deli.

At 3pm and 3.30pm, Sidmouth Museum will be leading walks around the town, and there will be a performance by the Sidmouth Ukulele Strummers.
