What's on at the 2018 Chestnut Festival

Come and join us for day of family fun on the mountain on the 6th May 2018. Savour the abundant chestnuts, gourmet food, Devonshire tea, coffee, artisan beer and mulled wine.

Explore the diverse range of stalls showcasing locally made handcrafts and produce. Children can enjoy the fun rides and adventure play space. Kids and silence don't usually go hand in hand - unless they are up to mischief or enjoying a SILENT DISCO! Each year we like to add a bit of 'new' the Chestnut Festival so this year, we are delighted to welcome Festive Tribe and their Silent Disco. Make sure you check it out come May 6, it will be hard to miss!

10am - 4pm

For the first time in Chestnut Festival history there will be an ATM on site so you won't have to miss out on that beautiful handmade doll or slice of chestnut brownie!
