Tapton Lock Festival

Junction Arts is proud to host the annual Tapton Lock Festival at Chesterfield Canal.

An exciting and dynamic programme of activities has been developed for the whole family to enjoy, including live music and outdoor theatre, arts and traditional craft workshops, boat trips, ‘have a go’ canoes, craft beer, ice cream and lots more!

This year also features a chance for young people to earn a Discover Arts Award at the festival, this is a accredited award and the first step on what can be a long journey up to Gold which counts towards University entry.

We try to keep as much activity available for free and this year we will have a bubbleologist and face painting as well.

All welcome, dog friendly.
