What’s On This Bank Holiday Weekend


Bank Holidays are great. There’s loads of extra time, excitement and an excuse to have yourself a little break… so why not try the Peak District?

There’s loads of great things to do whilst you’re here too:



Beside the Seaside Day Crich Tramway

Vintage seaside loveliness guaranteed! For one weekend only, Crich Tramway Museum is bringing a beach party to Derbyshire.


Crich Tramway SEASIDE


The Village is being transformed into a seaside resort with a beach area complete with deck chairs, as well as the essential bucket and spades for the epitome of seaside day out… the sandcastle.

As well as sandcastles, they’ll also be a traditional “Flea” Circus, a Punch & Judy show, fun fair and Crich Brass will be performing on the Bandstand!


 Georgian Weekend at Cromford Mills


There will be owls, pony & trap rides, Georgian games, special tours, dressing up, face painting and a Georgian market … need we say more?! Get down the Cromford mill and live out your Georgian dreams.


Clash of the Knights at Bolsover Castle

Chain-mailed and adrenalin-fuelled, Bolsover castle is where these armoured knights battle it out! Feel the heat as four teams fight with clubs and shields in this contest of skill and strength.

Tensions will rise, alliances will be made and broken but only one team will triumph.

Enjoy merry music while your budding young knights test their bravery on the field and revel in some medieval culture… and almost definitely fall asleep in the car on the way home.


Castleton Garland Celebrations… with May pole dances!


This will be a fantastically traditional Bank Holiday event; May pole dances, horses and a procession of the “King & Consort” through the village… all of which ends up in the pub where the festivities continue!



Find Some Local Art at the ‘Arts in the Village’ Festival

Thornbridge Brewery will be hosting a Saturday social over the bank holiday weekend. Chilled beer, laid-back music and exciting food will be the orders of the day, and you can even pop along to a brewery tour whilst you’re there!



We hope that we’ve inspired you to go out and make the most of that extra day off- enjoy!
