One World Festival welcomes everyone in the local community and beyond to enjoy a rich programme of music, food and fun. The free festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday 6th July between 12 – 6pm in High Lea Park, New Mills.

Up to 5,000 people are expected to come together to celebrate peace, the environment, cultural diversity, world development during a special one-day event. In 2024, thanks to a grant from the Shared Prosperity Fund, One World Festival collaborates with The Tent People, local festival organisers, to deliver an exciting programme of live music from a wide range of bands and solo acts, including a new collaboration for festival favourites, Conundrum. The full line-up will be announced closer to the event date.

But there’s more! Expect fun activities for all ages, talks and discussions, spoken word performances, and plenty of stalls – all highlighting the festival’s theme: Sharing. Connect with more than 30 stalls from local and national community groups and charities working to make a positive impact in the High Peak and the wider world. Enjoy the choice of international food on offer and help raise funds for next year’s event by donating what you can or buying a drink, in a One World reusable cup.

Committee member, Sophie Mackreth says “The Shared Prosperity grant has been a fantastic opportunity for One World to invest in higher profile and diverse acts for this year’s festival – The Tent People have been the perfect local partner to call out to their contacts and organise the programming.”
