Georgian Derbyshire Festival 2023

Heritage Festival
Back for its 2nd year, the Georgian Derbyshire Festival 2023 will take place between Saturday 16th September and Sunday 8th October.

DERBYSHIRE in the Georgian Era was a place of wonder, of surprises and innovations – a place which attracted the attention of the rich and provided better homes for workers.

In the valley of the River Derwent, water was put to work to power the world’s first factories. Further north, the stark, beautiful landscapes of the Peak District and health-giving waters brought the county’s first tourists to Buxton and Matlock Bath.

To celebrate this fascinating era, the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Partnership and the Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust will once again work together to provide a series of events and activities to raise the profile of Derbyshire’s contribution to world history at that time.

Starting in Buxton and then moving across to Bakewell, Cromford Mills, Belper and Derby, guests have the opportunity to experience tours, talks and workshops on this year's themes of ‘People’ and ‘Landscapes’ in some of Derbyshire most iconic venues.

Events run from Friday 16 September to Sunday 8 October.

Buxton Crescent Experience - 16/17 and 23/24 September
Cromford Mills- 30 September and 01 October
Derby & Darley Abbey - 07 October
Belper - 08 October
