Below are some links to other interesting sites to do with Wirksworth
& the surrounding area. Some are for general reading and some will
give you ideas of things to do in the area.
The most important one to consider looking at, is the Wirksworth
Festival website. The Wirksworth Festival is the biggest event in the
year for Wirksworth. 1000's of visitors flock to Wirksworth to view
art, sculpture, photography and many of the other arts. The pinnacle
event for us being "The Gig on the Roof" which is held outside the
pub. Live local bands play until 9pm and then until midnight inside the
pub. Loads of music, comedy and plays are also on during the week
too. Have a look at the website for full details.
This year the festival starts on Friday 5th September and "The Gig on the Roof" is on Sunday 7th
