Festival of Leisure

One of the biggest and best events in the South Derbyshire calendar is the Festival of Leisure - this year taking place on June 23 and 24.

Thousands of people flock to Maurice Lea Memorial Park in Church Gresley every year to experience a fun filled weekend of thrills and spills.

From breathtaking shows to exciting attractions to carnival parades, you won’t be able to take your eyes off the action for a second.

Throw in marquees, fairground rides, side shows, sporting taster sessions and food galore and you have a party.

And the best news? It’s free to attend.
