Bands and pubs

Me and the mrs are staying in Bakewell on the 29 an 30 of July. Can you advise on the possibility of running into a rock band. I play the drums rather poorly but I like Several Hard Rock bands and The Clash please

Dates :

Event type :

Tel :01773 841488

Coney Grey Farm Showground




They have their own website and charge £45 entry - perhaps not quite what you had in mind !

This is about 30 miles south-east of Bakewell - the activities I can find listed there are more rural in nature.

The Wheatsheaf,a truely memorable place to have lunch.

I have travelled to many foreign countries and have tried some truely wierd & memorable dishes before.But i have never tasted anything more truely memorable than this establishments food.

I ordered the Lamb Shank while my wife ordered the Chicken Pesto pracels.I was hungry,my belly was grumbling,and i anticipated that meal would make my day.Unfortunately it did!

To be honest my lamb shank covered by gravy was ok,but to serve SALAD on the same plate was a bit BLAAAAAAA!Lamb Shank,gravy,chips,carrots,peas and then cucumber,lettuce,tomato?What the hell is a matter with those people.Cucumber with gravy?

My wifes chicken pesto parcels was really a chicken breast wrapped with a crust.It looked like a Cornish pasty at first!!!

I paid a fortune for it! we should have gone across the road for 2 for a tenner!

Wrong side of county for heavy metal Chesterfield has more on usually on Saturday nights

and surprisingly (when you look in daylight) there is one pub in Staveley the Victoria they have some REALLY cracking metal bands on most week-ends and is usually heaving with folk who appreciate it
