Business to join the fun

Organisers of the World Village Market are appealing for Dales businesses to get involved in the event by offering discounts on stalls.

The festival – which was cancelled in July due to wet weather and soggy ground conditions – will be held in Hall Leys Park, Matlock, from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 September.

Jayne Russell, of the Market Square Group, said: “We’re so pleased to get a new date in the diary for this fun-filled weekend.

“The market will feature produce from across the globe but we always like to ensure a regional element to all of our events.

“We hope that businesses in and around Matlock will come on board to help us offer our visitors a truly inclusive experience.”
