Chelmorton Festival

Every summer, the village holds a week of charitable fund-raising community events and the residents make a special effort to decorate their properties to accentuate the festival mood. In 2016 the Festival raised just over £2000 for the village - supporting the Church, Institute and the  Chelmorton Children's Charity.


In 2017, the festival will be held from 10th to 16th July.

  • Festival Quiz on the Monday evening
