Derbyshire Woodland Festival 2017

The Green Man

Our popular Festival returns on 23 and 24 September 2017 at Elvaston Castle Country Park and is a celebration of traditional and contemporary woodland crafts.


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, 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: £8 per car and £4 per motorcycle all day. £12 weekend ticket available. Payment by cash only.

There will be a map and index of exhibitors available at the Festival to help you plan your day. Many of the exhibitors were at the festival in 2016 so you might want to take a look at the 2016 directory attached to this page for a flavour of the event. The Woodland Festival gallery (opens in a new window) showcases what to look out for.
