If you’re staying in Derbyshire this month, there is plenty to keep the whole family occupied.
For Harry Potter enthusiasts, make sure you visit Wirksworth on Saturday 20th October for the Wirksworth Wizarding Day. Expect potions and wandmaking, quidditch, herbology and charms. Visit the Memorial Hall for Harry Potter themed craft stalls and arts activities, or to hold an owl, snake or iguana. Take a trip through town on the Knight Bus or ride the HogWirks Express from Duffield. St Mary’s Church will even host the house dormitories for the Horcrux Hunt!

There will be a fantastic firework display every Saturday evening & Sunday 28 October, which will see the sky around Matlock Bath lit up in multi-colours. The firework display will begin at 9.00pm with the best viewing positions being in Derwent Gardens. Tickets can be bought in advance from here or on the day.
