Come and enjoy Derbyshire County Council’s Woodland Festival. A celebration of traditional and contemporary woodland crafts. Watch expert woodcraft professionals at work, marvel at the skill of the horse logger and chainsaw carver. Sample the campfire cooking or 'have-a-go' yourself at some crafts on display. There will be horse and dray rides available, or you could take a walk through the magnificent grounds of Elvaston Castle. This is a weekend for everyone of all ages to enjoy with lots to see, do and experience.

Wear suitable clothing and footwear. 

Cost free, but charges may apply for some activities.

Dogs on leads welcome. 

Parking charges apply.

I copied the above bit from the website...

The event is on over the Saturday and Sunday, but I will be going on the Sunday. I aim to be near the car park ticket office/ toilets at the showground car park at 12pm on the Sunday.

I have never been before so not sure how exciting it will be, so if anyone has any kites or anything to bring along too we could always do a bit of kite flying if it isn't that great.

Should you happen to be going along anyway with your children or dogs then I can see no problem with you joining us!

Please be aware that I have no mobile phone and so will NOT be sending out my number beforehand as usually happens. Therefore, you will have to use common sense and do things the old skool way and turn up on time otherwise you may not find us ;) I will also not be aware of any last minute RSVPs, so it is best if you just RSVP 'yes' if you know you can attend, rather than 'maybe'.

    Thank goodness someone has finally said it:

    "Best if you just RSVP 'yes' if you know you can attend, rather than 'maybe'...

    Take heed all.... :-)
