Whitwell Festival of Music

Described by the Derbyshire Times as 'Derbyshire's best kept secret', Whitwell Festival of Music is a community event in a village setting, now in its 11th year, getting bigger and better every time. Run by a small team of volunteers - Whitwell 4Ward - the festival has raised thousands of pounds for good causes. Featuring a wealth of musical and artistic talent across all genres - around 30 bands and artists over the weekend - the festival also offers a range of locally brewed real ales, ciders, value-for-money food, arts and music workshops and children's activities.

Camping is available on two sites within the village, but alternatively, for a more luxurious experience, there is plenty of B&B accommodation within a 5 mile radius of the festival ranging from Travelodge and Ibis, to Best Western and other 4-star hotels nearby.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 crisis, Whitwell Festival of Music 2020 has been cancelled. Understandably, we are hugely disappointed as we had  a fabulous line-up in place. However, we hope to maybe put on a smaller event later in the autumn/winter if possible, and will return in September 2021 for our usual festival shenanigans.

In the meantime, keep safe and be nice to people.
