North East Derbyshire Victory Festivals

Due to the extension of Step 3 of the Government’s Roadmap to Recovery to 19th July 2021, we have taken the decision to cancel our arrangements for the Victory Festivals events in Clay Cross and Killamarsh, which had been planned to take place on Saturday 17th July 2021.


Whilst it is recognised that many people will be disappointed with cancellation, the Council has a responsibility to maintain the safety of its residents and visitors and to be compliant with national expectations.

The Council is in the process of identifying a new date and arrangements for a public event in the early autumn, which will commemorate its commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

The new event will retain some of the flavour of the Victory Festivals and previous VE Day and VJ Day anniversary events which we were unfortunately unable to hold during 2020 and this summer because of COVID-19. More details will be shared as plans are confirmed.
