Derbyshire Woodland Festival Returns to Elvaston Castle

Woodland Festival

The Derbyshire Woodland Festival returns to Elvaston Castle on 18th and 19th September 2021. This is a fantastic event celebrating traditional and contemporary woodland crafts. Look out for the updates.

The annual festival is set within the beautiful grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park, which add to the unique feel of this special event. Visitors also have the opportunity to explore the woodland, formal gardens, lake and parkland that surround the castle.

This is a brilliant day out for all the family with lots of fun activities for children and plenty to keep you entertained. Professional demonstrators and performers will share their amazing skills, from wood carving, turning, bushcraft, and willow weaving to safe opportunities for you to have a go.

Visitor attractions include outdoor theatre, historical re-enactment, Green Man storytelling, working
horses and traditional fairground rides.

A huge array of stalls selling bespoke gifts, crafts, textiles, furniture and timber products. Hungry visitors will have a wide variety of food and drink to choose from – including vegetarian and vegan options. Wildlife, heritage and tourism attractions here to inspire you.
We look forward to welcoming both new and returning visitors for a great weekend this year.

£10 a car per day
