Matlock Fest 2013 - Sunday Funday!

What a weekend!  The whole four days of Matlock Festival 2013 have been an absolute blast! Hall Leys Park was packed Saturday and Sunday. It's a shame the sun didn't make more of an appearance, but that didn't stop anyone enojoying the festival.  I was lucky enough to enjoy the whole Sunday in glorious Matlock, and had a fantastic time! Here are a few things I cast my eye on... Rides for the kids! The park was full of families enjoying their selves - there was a climbing wall and racing remote control cars too!  Beautiful music from the brass band set a wonderful background to the goings on  Sponsored by us!  I love Ewe!  Ales galore! The food stalls were really amazing - so many excellent local businesses and produce! YUM.   Loved the hand written signs that accompanied many of the stalls. And even a demo of how the products were handmade! The Maazi curry stand smelt amazing! Ding Dong Condiments. Every festival needs

Matlock Festival Ale

We are starting to get excited about Matlock Festival - its less than 2 weeks away!  After this gorgeous sun, lets all cross our fingers for more of the same for the 18th-21st (I'm not jinxing it!)  There has also been a little announcement that there is going to be a Official Festival Ale ONLY available during the festival dates. How great is that! The specaily brewed ale has been created Peak Ales, a local brewery.  Matlock Festival Ale will be available at Twenty  Ten and MoCa bar from Thursday 18th July, and also at MoCa's stall at the Food Festival in Hall Leys Park on the 21st!  So when you next get a round in, make sure you try a limited edition local beer!
