The Peak District Highland Games

Peak Highland Games

The Peak District Highland Games are returning to Matlock Farm Park.

See the country’s leading strongmen and mighty strongwomen compete in this hugely popular Peak District and Derbyshire annual event!

Enjoy a unique day out at the lawned arena with grandstand and straw bales to watch the super events of The Eight Tonne tractor Pull, The Peak District Dinnie Stone Challenge, The Tossing of the Caber, The GIANT Stone Throw, The 120kg Log Press and The Stone of Destiny Carry! All with full commentary by the Man Beast Master of Ceremonies. There’ll be a Tug of War for families against strongmen, a Scottish Piper Band and Scottish dancing also!

There will be lots going on elsewhere in the park too, with Jungle Jo’s exotic animal experience, market, craft and games stalls, food and drink concessions and wonderful animal activities, including short children’s pony rides, small animal handling and more. There’s great playtime fun too for the children, featuring the fantastic new Enchanted Hamlet!
