ORGANISERS have heaped praise on the first ever Chatsworth Road Festival.

The nine-day event, aimed at celebrating life on the well-known road, boasted over 90 fun-filled events and attracted thousands of people.

Following the success, organisers have confirm that the festival will return in 2012.

The celebration featured a number of events organised by local businesses, groups and institutions with highlights including poetry from Matt Black, the new Derbyshire Poet Laureate, a food festival, a beer festival, live music and exhibitions.

Deirdre Gage, chair of the festival, said: “There really was something for everyone.”
