What's On

With a packed calendar of year-round events, there is bound to be something to take your fancy.

What's on in the Peak District & Derbyshire

Whatever time of year you visit, there are always exciting events in Derbyshire and the Peak District to look forward to!

Watch our gardens blossom in spring and see the traditional art of Well Dressing come to life from May to September. In summer, discover carnivals, festivals and traditional country shows. There are light festivals and plenty of spooky Halloween fun in autumn, and there’s no better place at Christmas with traditional Christmas markets, magical experiences in our famous stately homes, and lots of opportunities for the children to visit Father Christmas.

Make sure you stay a while longer and don’t miss what’s on in the Peak District and Derbyshire.
