Eroica Britannia

Where: Friden Grange, Nr. Buxton, Derbyshire, SK17 0DYEroica Britannia

When: 16th-18th June 2017

Eroica Britannia is a 3-day family festival as magical and as unusual as its name suggests.

Putting down roots in Friden Grange near Buxton, The Peak District amongst 100 acres of wild vistas, big skies and romantic woodlands this year means friends, families and kids roam wild and free living a quintessentially British 'lord and lady of the Grange' life. Pass through The Adventure Kids Club, busily Blyton-esque in getting back to nature with a boisterous weekend of 'The Great British Beach, campfire craft, den building and stargazing.

In addition to enjoying the bars and snack-a-terias, marvel at the main stars of the show, 4,500 Riders anticipating '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 main event of the weekend - 'The World's Most Handsome Bike Ride' sets off on a Great British Adventure, on tracks, trail, hill and dale early on Sunday 18th June on retro pre-1987 road bikes with matching heritage threads for a sensory plunge into rural exploration over 25 miles for families and pub crawlers and the stiff upper lip inducing challenges of 55 and 100 miles of pure Great Britishness.

Kids 12yrs and under GO FREE! Bring your dogs, bring your spirit of adventure. It is without doubt a fine vintage.
