Olympic fever in the Dales

Hours before the official opening of the London 2012 Games there’s a real Olympics feel to the Derbyshire Dales’ own summer spectacular.

Village Games 2012 has an Olympic and Paralympic theme with a host of demonstrations, taster sessions and fun for all the family.

Most activities are free as Dales sports clubs and providers showcase their talents. Other attractions include inflatable fun, arts and crafts, a barbecue, fun run, parachute games, football, tug of war, archery, wildlife walks, face painting and much more.

The event is being held at Carsington Water on Friday July 27 from 10am until 2pm.
