The Chatsworth Road Festival is now underway.

The popular annual festival – which celebrates life on the much-loved Chesterfield street – started on Thursday and will finish on Sunday.

The event will boast more than 120 activities, promotions and competitions along Chatsworth Road.

Howard Borrell, a spokesman for the event, said: “This festival differs from others in that it doesn’t feature a fun fair, five-a-side football or marching bands – instead it aims to more widely promote businesses and organisations based on or near to the ever-more vibrant Chatsworth Road.

“The area is a real gem with great pubs, restaurants and an eclectic mix of shops which sell everything from Wellingtons to wedding dresses and fantastic pottery to Fairtrade coffee.

“The festival aims to provide something for all tastes and ages.”
