Derbyshire Woodland Festival

Our popular Festival returns on 22 and 23 September 2018 at Elvaston Castle Country Park and is a celebration of traditional and contemporary woodland crafts.

The Green Man

There are many crafts on display, including fire lighting, survival skills, pole lathe turning, chair making, willow weaving, Green Man songs and stories, and much more.

This is a wonderful day out, for all the family with lots of activities for children, delicious food, quality arts and crafts, bespoke gifts, plants and an array of stalls.

Watch expert craftspeople at work and have a go yourself.

The festival is set within the beautiful grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park, which add to the unique feel of this special event. You also have the opportunity to explore the woodland, formal gardens, lake and parkland that surround the castle.

The Woodland Festival runs from 10am to 5pm on both days.

Special event parking charges apply all weekend:

  • £10 per car
  • £5 per motorcycle all day
  • £15 weekend ticket available

Payment is by cash only. The voucher attached to this page gives you a £1 discount off the daily parking charge for the festival.

There will be a directory of exhibitors available at the festival to help you plan your day.
