Festival for Amber Valley announced

A festival for Amber Valley is to be staged in the summer – allowing the Borough Council to promote its services and encourage engagement from stakeholders and members of the public.

The free event will be held along the lines of previous festivals known as Environment Day and Inter@ction Day which were enormously popular with residents and visitors.

This year’s Amber Valley Festival will be held on Saturday 18 July, on Ripley Market Place and Shirley Road Car Park, and will complement the Ripley Music Festival which will be taking place that week.

Alongside the Council it is hoped other community organisations such as Groundwork Cresswell, Ashfield and Mansfield, promoting its Future Healthy Eating Scheme, will be a part of the Festival.

Deputy Leader of the Council, Cllr Chris Emmas-Williams, commented: “The aim of the event will be to attract residents and visitors to the town, to increase footfall within the town centre and to promote council and partner services. The emphasis will be very much on entertainment and family activities, and we are hoping the Festival will go on to become a regular fixture in the calendar, and visit all four town centres in the Borough.”
