Darnhill Festival

Darnhill Festival has been a mainstay of summer on the Darnhill Estate since 2003. Almost always on the first Saturday in July, the Festival starts with a vibrant and noisy procession around the estate followed by a full afternoon of creative activities and entertainment. Darnhill is the ‘Lucky Festival’, never rained off and rarely rained on.
