6TH ANNUAL WIRKSWORTH BEER FESTIVAL Starting 12 o’clock midday, held at The Rockface, situated to the rear of The Lime Kiln Pub. Promising a wide selection of beer from local breweries, we are sure the festival will live up to its growing reputation for delivering great beer, a selection of locally produced food and live local music throughout the day. For those who are not so keen on beer, wine, spirits and other drinks are supplied by The Lime Kiln pub. Gates close at 11.30pm, and the day will wrap up with a performance by The Wam Bam Band. Until recently the festival was held at the Maltings in Wirksworth, but after a long discussion about Covid safety it was decided to move the venue this year. All money raised through this year’s festival will go to the Wirksworth Skatepark fund.
