South Derbyshire is the ideal location for your event, with a fantastic range of venues from hotels, to atmospheric stately homes, to unique events spaces. It is an attractive rural location in the National Forest that it is easy to get to.
At the centre of the country and the national road network, South Derbyshire is very accessible, particularly from the Midlands cities of Birmingham, Derby, Leicester and Nottingham. The area is served by railway stations at Burton, Derby, East Midlands Parkway, Lichfield and Willington, together with Birmingham International and East Midlands Airports.
Whatever the size of your event, from a small business meeting or a product launch to a conference or exhibition, we can help your organisation realise its ambitions. Many locations can offer overnight accommodation for delegates, whilst for company away days, venues such as Rosliston Forestry Centre and Swadlincote Snowsports Centre can also offer activities such as archery or tobogganing on site.
We can help you to choose the perfect setting for your wedding or celebration, whatever your desire – from an intimate gathering to a grand occasion. Alongside a range of hotels and purpose-built venues, South Derbyshire can offer more unique experiences such as a woodland glade in the National Forest.
South Derbyshire hosts hundreds of events each year, offering urban and rural locations from public parks and market squares, to country parks and sports facilities, several of which are Olympic standard. The estates at Calke Abbey, Catton Hall and Elvaston Castle host major outdoor events from music concerts and motoring festivals to sports events and county shows. We can also work with you to promote your event to local residents and visitors.
