This year’s highlights will include new visual outdoor theatre entertainment from Pif-paf Theatre about seeds, trees and bees.  This will create a new buzz to our popular event and help spread  important environmental messages in a fun and family friendly way.  You could learn the waggle dance or get your nose pollinated!

We’ll be celebrating traditional and contemporary woodland crafts with demonstrations and hands on sessions. Fancy your hand at wattle and daub or thatching for instance?

And there’s outdoor theatre, a Viking invasion, a living history camp, Green man storytelling, working horses, arts and crafts, a wide range of food on offer and much more. Most activities are free of charge.

As part of Derbyshire County Council’s Journey to Net Zero they’ll be promoting tree campaigns like the Million Trees project  and hosting the Fantastic Homes Van to give energy and tips on reducing your carbon footprint.
