August Bank Holiday weekend sees the much anticipated return of the Matlock Food and Drink Festival.
The location of this event is in the fantastic Hall Leys Park. This is a great location set right in the centre of Matlock Town.
During the weekend there will be a mouth watering array of foods from all over the world both hot and cold, as well as a selection of craft and gift stalls.
To drink there will be a selection of craft ales, ciders, a fabulous gin bar, prosecco and Pimm’s.
There will be live music all weekend on the bandstand from local artists and children’s entertainment with have a go activities including meeting the parrots.
Bring your chairs and your family. Dogs welcome.
The River Derwent runs right along the side of Hall Leys Park providing a central point of the Town. There’s a fantastic walk along the Derwent, which can take you either onto Matlock Bath or up onto the cliffs at High Tor.
Hall Leys Park also has a kids playground with kids paddling pool and toilets. Centrally located in the Park is a Cafe selling all the usual refreshments and snacks and close by is a second toilet block – so need to worry about being caught short.
With great weather this will make for a stunning weekend in a stunning location in this up and coming and thriving Derbyshire town.
