Stainsby Festival is a well-established, intimate and family friendly event in a beautiful rural setting. Held in large marquees on a greenfield site at Brunt’s Farm in the picturesque hamlet of Stainsby Derbyshire, it has stunning views across the valley to the National Trust’s Hardwick Hall. Stainsby celebrates its astonishing 48th festival this year.
It’s a registered charity and a not-for-profit event run entirely by unpaid volunteers, not some faceless corporate. Stainsby is all about live music: hearing, playing, writing, performing, learning. All proceeds go back into the event. Period.
Stainsby has everything: great folk and world music in traditional marquees, crafts stalls, childrens entertainment, music workshops of every kind, a singers competition and walkabout events throughout the weekend with camping thrown in.
