Georgian Derbyshire Festival 2023
Building on the success of 2022’s inaugural festival, the Georgian Derbyshire celebrations will expand to four weekends, firstly based around Buxton for September 16/17 and 23/24, then in the Derwent valley on the following weekends. September 30 and October 1 will focus on the Cromford area, October 7 will be Derby and Darley Abbey’s day and October 8 will focus on Belper and Milford. There are two themes, landscapes (at Cromford) and people (at Derby, Darley Abbey, Belper and Milford on the last weekend). It’s a chance to discover more about the county’s Georgian-linked attractions and appreciate their significance and impact both locally and globally.
Over the duration of the festival, there’s a mix of free and charged-for events of all types. Walks, craft sessions, talks, demonstrations – there’s lots to discover and enjoy.
We are currently planning the festival and will have more details about the events in the coming weeks. If you have a suitable event and would like to take part in the Georgian Derbyshire Festival please contact us on email@example.com
