Next Event:

Youlgr(e)ave, October 6th–8th 2017

And the following event...


Based in the village hall as usual, Church St., Youlgrave, DE45 1UR. Showers available!

There is a little parking around the Village Hall. Otherwise you can park either on the Main Road, Conksbury Lane, the Playing Fields on Alport Lane, or the car park at the top of the village (from village hall, up to main road and turn Left). The car park is at the end of the village on the right (easy to miss entrance — watch for blue P sign). As it's a walk you may wish to unload first.
