Are you in the Peak District for the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend. There’s more going on than you’ll have time for!
Crich Tramway Village
If you have come to Derbyshire (one of the most inland counties) but are missing the seaside then head to Crich Tramway Village. The village will be turned into a seaside resort with a beach deckchairs, buckets and spades, a fun fair and lots of lots of icecream! With temperatures set to rise for the weekend, it’s going to be a hit with all. Crich is also dog-friendly and accessible for the less able.
Buxton Pavilion Gardens
Despite the repair works currently going on, Buxton Pavilion Gardens will still be hosting its annual Bank Holiday Spring Spectacular. There’ll be stalls, food and drink, face painting, music, dancing and children’s entertainment
If you fancy a smaller, more ‘country’ affair then head to Monyash on Monday for their village green market. Stalls and activities to raise money for several good causes.
Tissington Well Dressing
Tissington village traditionally kicks off well-dressing season. Six wells around the village will be ‘dressed’ and blessed on 25th May. They will then remain in place for about a week afterward. We’d recommend taking time out to see this Derbyshire custom. Read more about well-dressing.
Hartington Festival of Talents
If having a go is more your thing then Hartington Festival of Talents is the place to go at the weekend; bell ring, clog dancing, cheese making, dry stone walling, patchwork, to name a few
