Festival of Leisure

One of the biggest and best events in the South Derbyshire calendar is the Festival of Leisure which took place this year on June 24 and 25 and was once again a great success with visitors, exhibitors and performers alike.

With bands and dancers, mountain biking shows, gundog displays, kick-boxing demonstrations, have-a-go sports and not forgetting Punch and Judy there was something for everyone to enjoy - and above all the sun shone for the whole weekend.

Have a look at the pictures below and re-live all the best bits. 

Don’t forget to put the date for next year’s event in your diary – Saturday 29 and Sunday 30, June, 2019.
