Peak festival to showcase arts

Have your say

A FESTIVAL of walking, cycling and horse riding is to be held in Penistone, Bradfield and the eastern Peak District next June.

East Peak Outdoors, organised by Sheffield-based charity Art in the Park, runs from June 19 to 23 and will celebrate the natural environment of the area.

The events will build on the previous successful Villages of Poetry project and other initiatives introduced in the area over the last two years, including free art classes and poetry trails.

The group is hoping to combine outdoor pursuits with the arts, featuring creative workshops, including poetry and creative writing, themed walks, explorations of local folklore, heritage and traditions, and art events including opportunities to work with professional artists.
