Come along to learn more about the amazing man behind the legends surrounding St Cuthbert, and hear some wonderful stories of his relationship with the animals of Lindisfarne and the surrounding coastline. Discover more about his life, and how he is much more than the Patron Saint of Northumbria!

This walk is also a great chance to explore parts of Holy Island whilst listening to John tell stories of St Cuthbert and the surrounding area - the walk will take you past the harbour, up to the Heugh to view the Farnes, and down to St Cuthbert's Island.

You can find more details and how to book your place on our Events page.

John's final walk will be a very special event on September 4th - more details coming soon!
