The World's Most Handsome Festival!Published on 6th. April 2018
Two-thousand straw bales, 300 deck chairs and 2.5 miles of fairy lights will decorate what organisers claim is the "world's most handsome festival" says the Nottingham Post
"Eroica Britannia will takeover Friden Grange, in Newhaven, Derbyshire for three days between June 15 and 17 for a celebration of everything "Best of Great British".
The vintage-themed event is putting down roots in the Peak District for its fifth year in a row amongst 100 acres of wild vistas, big skies and romantic woodlands where festival-goers can relax by twinkly campfires, play darts or arm-wrestle at posh British boozers and watch films under the stars.
Families can pass through The Adventure Kids Club, which is busily Blyton-esque in getting back to nature with a boisterous weekend of campfire craft, den building and stargazing.
Revellers can also compete for top prizes in Best in Show hosted by Patrick Grant and come Saturday night sartorially stylish crowds come together for an enormous guided community get-together as the Great British Barn Dance hosted at the Timber Barn.
Over at the Grazing Fields there will be British gin bars, snack-a-terias and award-winning food hangouts.
The star of the show is however an epic bike ride. More than 4,500 riders are expected to take part in 'The World's Most Handsome Bike Ride' as they sweep through the festival with easy-on-the-eye tandems, eye-watering penny farthings and good time girls and guys on retro steeds posing, preening, steeling up to prepare for the challenge ahead.
The cyclists will take to the tracks and trails of the Peak District National Park before returning back for a welcome home party with Brit nominee Beth Rowley."
