Record crowds flocked to Matlock’s “best ever” Victorian weekend.

The town was transformed in to a winter wonderland as Hall Leys Park hosted the annual three-day event.

Over 150 stalls were on offer in two marquees including a large craft section, gifts for all the family and new this year – a local produce food mall.
