See our countryside information for the latest about what facilities are open and the safety measures in place.

Unfortunately COVID-19 has put a stop to many of our usual events and festivals in 2020.

We have cancelled many events scheduled to take place at our countryside sites due to the impact of COVID-19 and to comply with the current government guidance on social distancing. We've also cancelled the Derbyshire Woodland Festival and Tapton Lock Festival that were due to take place in September 2020.
