The first Festival of the Artisan will be held in the beautiful market town of Ashbourne, on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District, over the summer solstice of 2018. Raising a glass to all things handmade, it will be a three-day celebration of craftsmanship and creativity in music, craft, food, drink and all things artisanal.

The music event will showcase acoustic performers from Britain, Ireland, Spain and America as well as local bands. Eclectic and diverse but all committed to make the best in acoustic music - featuring the new award winning great new talent of Blair Dunlop; BLas - the new Irish supergroup whose last show on Irish TV was watched by over 1 million people, the indefatigable Merry Hell - who storm festivals all over the UK and many more.

The beer, cider and gin festival will take place in the adjacent St Oswald’s Church Hall, where over twenty craft beers, ten real ciders and ten gins from local and national producers will be available.

Crafts people and artisans will be exhibiting at The Festival of the Artisan on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June only. They will be giving practical, live demonstrations to showcase their skills, and to give festival-goers an opportunity to learn more about their particular craft.
