Supping real ale in Barrow Hill Roundhouse, watching horse trials at Chatsworth or sampling delicious food at Hardwick Hall are all on the cards for 2022.
And Chesterfield Pride will be returning, much to the delight of the Derbyshire Times followers on Facebook.
Gary Fuller posted: “Such a fantastic event that supports so many different local businesses and artists artist as well as a beacon for the LGBTQ of Chesterfield!” Tanya Moger commented: “I absolutely love helping each year and the atmosphere is amazing! The team all treat me like family and I couldn't ask for a better bunch.” David W Smith wrote: “I can't wait to see what the organisers pull out of their sleeves this year.”
Chesterfield Pride organiser Dan Walker posted: “Chesterfield Pride last year was fantastic. The event had so much fantastic support from Chesterfield Borough Council, it was a great community event. The cabaret stage was great and had some amazing local performers as drag queens.”
