Beyond the castle, there are many events and activities going on in the small town. Large-scale events like the lantern parade, which was established in 1994 and the food festival which launched in 2014 pull in hundreds of people to Bolsover.
The close-knit community throws itself into raising money for charity, celebrating milestone anniversaries and entertaining audiences with plays and shows.
Here are our a few of our favourite photos from years gone by in Bolsover.
