Frequently Asked Questions...

 

How long does the walk take?
This depends very much on the size of the group. On average it lasts about 90 minutes but with a larger crowd it takes a little longer. Bank Holiday Sundays are our busiest nights, followed by Saturdays, and July - August generally.

 

 

Is the walk wheelchair/pushchair friendly?
The vast majority of the walk is on level ground with only kerbstones and single steps to negotiate. There is one point where a large flight of (39) steps has to be negotiated. In the past these steps could be avoided by use of a public lift. This season, due to construction work, the lift is not available. However we do return the same way shortly afterwards. It means that anyone in a wheelchair would have to wait there, missing one of the set pieces of the Walk, until we return approximately 12-15 minutes later. As this situation is beyond our control, but we feel badly that anyone affected would not see the entire show we are not charging anyone in a wheelchair this season.

 

 

What happens if it is raining?
We go on regardless, so bring an umbrella! We do have a minimum number of people needed (10) for the walk to go ahead - but in the last three years we have failed to acquire this only two times.

 

 

What should we do if we plan to bring a large group?
We define a group as 15+ people. If you plan to bring a group of this size we do appreciate a warning as we try to 'stagger' groups so that the numbers do not become unmanageable on any one night - please email to let us know the size of group, and date you plan to attend. There is a group rate for groups of 15+, as long as the group leader collects the money from everyone they represent at the beginning of the walk.

 


Is the walk suitable for children?
We've had many children on the walk, and although it's not designed for children, they've all enjoyed it so far!

 


How good does our English have to be to enjoy the walk?
A good knowledge of English will definitely enhance your enjoyment of the walk. Most of the humour is verbal, and some is based on slang or word play. Whilst there is visual comedy on the walk - someone who has little knowledge of English would be slightly confused!
