Oliver complimented the range of walks available during the festival from "potters beside the North Sea coast at eerie Orford Ness" to "saunters amid the more idyllic landscapes of Dedham Vale".

The festival will take place this year from Saturday, May 11 to Sunday, May 26 and will explore "every corner of Suffolk".
