Bakewell Festivals

There are lots of Bakewell festivals which happen throughout the year. Some are indoor and some are outdoor and some are dependent on the great British weather it's true - but whatever the precipitation, Bakewell festivals are all about having fun, getting together and being with loved ones. There are Bakewell music festivals and arts festivals galore. There are poetry in the garden events during the festival season and carnival time, ghost walks and exhibitions of all types and arts. Literary festivals are a great way of listening to your favourite book in the open air perhaps, on the banks of the glorious River Wye.

 Bakewell festivals are all about frivolity, fun for all the family, and for all ages and all generations. Leave the car behind and grab the park-and-ride and get into Bakewell early during festival season. Whether you like dressing up in fancy dress and sailing boats down the river, sink or swim, perhaps beer festivals are more to tickle your fancy? You can take part and volunteer, or simply be a visitor and sample the delights that Bakewell has to offer. Bakewell in festival mode is certainly a sight to behold and i a memory worth creating. Summer speaks loud and proud of Bakewell festivals - so come and join in the fun.
