Big Rhino Barefoot Walk

You’ll see a lot of interesting things at The Barefoot Walk this year – but we bet you didn’t think you’d see a Big Rhino! Back by popular demand, the fun foursome are going to be entertaining the crowds with their big personalities and even bigger tunes.

You can see Big Rhino performing in Nottingham on Friday – they are at the “Not The Glastonbury Festival” with The Breakfast Club (who are also performing at The Barefoot Walk!). NTGF is “all the fun of a festival without having to spend a weekend in a muddy, rainy field with horrible toilets” and is at the old Barton Bus depot in Beeston, Nottingham – which has been turned into an uber-cool trendy new venue.

Barefoot Walk – The Route!

Originally posted on The Barefoot Walk:

Here is a ‘rough’ layout of the route for this year’s Barefoot Walk:

barefoot walk nottingham route

There are two routes you can take – one is a bit over 3km and the other is a bit under 5km (we think!) so there will be something to suit as many people as possible. You can register for the walk here. Even your dogs are welcome!

There is no pressure to do either walk – just choose whichever suits you – remember – this is just for charity, it is not a race or an endurance test. Last year, all the walkers were back in well under an hour – even those who did the longer one and even the lovely lady who did it on crutches! If you start out doing the long one but want to change ‘en route’ (so to speak) – that is completely fine. No one is keeping track…

Kiddies Do The Toddle Waddle!

Barefoot Walk Nottingham 2013

Your favourite charity event really is for all the family and children are welcome to do The Barefoot Walk, but some feet may be too small and delicate. This year we will be incorporating a mini-event for the pre-schoolers or children that do not want to do the main walk. It will be more like a little assault course with lots of obstacles for them to negotiate – but all good fun and nothing too difficult.

In Kiddies Korner there will also be other activities and attractions for the little ones to get involved with and we even have our very own children’s entertainer – Stuart Brown – on hand to delight, amaze and give out balloon animals!

Electric Rainbow who are providing the inflatables and other fairground attractions on the day are also heavily involved in supporting Kiddies Korner and will be adding to…

The Barefoot Walk is so excited to have hot Nottingham talent, Frazer Lowrie playing our event!

Frazer Lowrie Barefoot Walk

Having just signed a publishing deal with ‘I’m Not From London Publishing‘ and being awarded the Young Creative Music Award at the Royal Concert Hall there is no wonder everyone is talking about Frazer Lowrie!
A young lad hailing from Snape Wood, Nottingham; Frazer is pushing the boundaries of genres, stereotypes and normality.

I'm Not From London

The proof of this is having been described as a mix between Jamie Cullum, Dallas Green and Rod Stewart!

Frazer Lowrie Barefoot Walk

In 2012 he released his 1st E.P ‘Things Have Changed’ and Frazer’s talents were quickly recognised by the public as he suddenly became a well-known artist on the local music scene.
Frazer has continued to ‘wow’ crowds at shows & festivals across the East Midlands, some of which including his hugely successful E.P launch’s; the first being his capacity…

Barefoot Networking At ScreenCity

Last night, members of #TeamBarefoot got to network with some fabulous Nottingham businesses and people at ScreenCity’s latest event, held exclusively at Hopkinson Vintage, Antiques & Art Centre.

screencity barefoot walkThe guys at ScreenCity are a great bunch, dedicated to showcasing the best that Nottingham has to offer – as we’ve mentioned before in our blog. The event was sponsored by Magic Box Wifi. The venue for this meeting was inspiring. Hopkinson was such a cool, fun eclectic place – characteristics shared by many of the people gathered there. We took a quick few photos of the floor we were on just before the venue closed, but there were another three floors of this stuff that we just have to go back and see asap!

We met some really great people there too who were very interested in The Barefoot Walk and how they could help. Stay tuned for possible…
