Community Showcase Day

Saturday 18th July 2015
10.00am – 3.30pm
Market Place, Ripley

A great community showcase event to highlight some of the very best bits about Amber Valley, will take place in Ripley on Saturday 18 July – and it will be FREE to attend!

Amber Fest is being staged by Amber Valley Borough Council, along with a number of partners, and will be a wonderful event in Ripley Market Place between 10.00am and 3.30pm, showing why the Borough is such a great place to live, work and play.  Amber Fest will then be followed by Ripley Music Festival with local bands performing from 1pm in the afternoon and an evening of music in Crossley Park, culminating in the fantastic Proms in the Park firework final.

The day will introduce you to some of the area’s treasures - from green spaces and award-winning parks to healthy activities and town trails.

At the same time visitors will be able to find out how to make their home energy efficient, how to reduce waste and recycle and reuse. EnviroCrime will also be in the spotlight along with the work of the neighbourhood community wardens.

The Community Safety Team will be on hand to give advice on crime prevention and other community safety related matters.  DerwentWISE and Groundwork will be highlighting how  local people can improve the environment, manage local wildlife and nature reserves and work with others to develop eco projects.

Music and dance performances will take place throughout the day and there will be activities for children and older family members to enjoy. Among the line-up will be -

face painting, stilt walker, balloon modelling, unicycle, Ripley Morris Men, Ripley Green Garters Morris Dancers and much more.
