The guided walk planned as part of the festival has been postponed until after the lockdown, possible until the 2021 festival, but if you can’t wait to explore Reid Park Road and The Grove, possibly during your “exercise hour”, email info@jesmondfestival.org.uk for a copy of John North’s walking notes!
