Derbyshire Wildlife Festival 2019

It’s back and wilder than ever!

Derbyshire’s very own Wildside Festival is back for 2019 – and bigger, in fact, wilder than ever before!

Set for 15th June 2019 at Woodside Farm, next door to Shipley Country Park. Carry on just along the Nutbrook Trail on the 15th and you’ll be rewarded with a day packed full of live music, arts, wild activities and superb food and drink, all in support of local wildlife.

The festival is hosted by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, with the aim of bringing thousands of people closer to nature. Jack Roper, festival organiser explains, “At the Trust we believe that everyone should have the chance to experience how awesome nature is – so, we decided to run a festival so thousands could experience pond dipping, bug hunting, den building, learn about wild flowers and all of Ilkeston’s local wildlife – all under the summer sun, on a gorgeous nature reserve! And it’s not just wildlife that we enjoy on the day – no festival is without live music, great food and drink and we’ve even thrown in some quirky storytelling and wild activities.”

And whilst you’re finding your wild side, you can rest assured that every ticket sold goes to helping local wildlife too.
