First Friday Walks

Slices of Beauty. Tamsin Grainger and Richard Keating, December 2nd 2022

We have been walking together on the first Friday of each month since 2004.

We’re pleased that walkers are able join us from a wide number of locations, including Scotland, Wales, Sweden, Georgia, Greece, USA and Australia.
Our walks are designed so that they can be joined where ever you happen to be either remotely, or in person at various locations throughout Gloucestershire in the UK.
We try to synchronise our walks so that everyone begins their own walk together.
If you walk together with us in rural Gloucestershire, most walks are around 5-7 km with a mixture of terrain that can vary between muddy tracks on hillside to flat and grassy river banks.
Walkers come from a variety of different disciplines and include artists and non-artists. Although many who join us are painters, printmakers and photographers others are poets, naturalists, writers, film makers, sound recordists, musicians or psychogeographers
Walks are generally ‘themed’ or ‘scripted’ and often a vehicle for shared, mutually agreed projects.
If you’d like to join us on a walk or would like more information, please contact us
