Chesterfield residents are buzzing with the news that the town has attracted two major entertainment events over summer – Peddler Market and Eat in the Park.
The news of the arrival of the hugely successful Peddler Market, which is coming to Chesterfield’s New Square 23 and 24 June, has garnered 1000s of comments of support on social media and hundreds of likes on the Derbyshire Times’ Facebook page.
Commenting on the Peddler Market Facebook page, Ginspired, a Chesterfield Market Hall business said: “Can’t wait for this! It will be a brilliant event with amazing food, drink and atmosphere.”
Ben Smith, Director at Peddler Events, said: “Over the past eight years, Peddler Market has played a pivotal role in helping transform Sheffield into one of the country’s leading culinary destinations.
“Our aim is to bring the leading lights of the street food world to this wonderful market town and see them shine alongside the wealth of talent and heritage that Chesterfield has to offer.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Peddler Market to Chesterfield at such an exciting time in Chesterfield’s regeneration, and the entire team are looking forward to seeing our new partnership grow.”
The extremely successful Peddler Market has operated from Sheffield’s Kelham Island since 2015, attracting around 8,000 visitors to the monthly street market event.
In addition to Peddler Market, Chesterfield has been selected for the first Eat in the Park festival outside Buxton. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend the festival which is being held in Chesterfield’s Queen Park on 5 and 6 August.
Jake Burnham, one of the event founders of Eat in the Park, which has been held in Buxton since 2020 explained why Chesterfield has been selected for the new venue for the expansion of their brand: “Chesterfield is 45 minutes from Buxton, a great catchment for us. We are confident in our numbers. It will work tremendously well”.
Events like Peddler Market and Eat in the Park reflect the popularity of the town’s growing hospitality and entertainment scene.
Since the beginning of 2023, two new bars have opened – Déjà Vu and the Brampton Social Club, which is owned by Santiago Perez who also owns the popular town centre late-night bar, Apartment. “I come from Chesterfield, and I am proud to be continuing to reinvest in the area”.
Less than a month after opening, The Brampton Social Club has gathered 744 followers on its Facebook page and glowing reviews.
