Ashfield District Council has a superb summer lined up for residents.
The Council’s 2023/24 events calendar kicks off with the once-in-a-generation event; the King’s Coronation on Saturday 6 May. Residents are invited to Titchfield Park, Hucknall to bring a picnic and friends and family to watch the Coronation live on the big screen! This will be followed by a cinema screening which will be revealed soon.
The outdoor cinema returns to Selston Country Park on Saturday 24 June for the third year. Once again, we will be asking residents to vote for the film they would like to see.
After the success of the first Ashfield Day last year which saw over 12,000 visitors flock to Sutton Lawn, the event is back and bigger than ever this year. Ashfield Day will be held on the park in Sutton on Saturday 5 August and will feature an array of activities and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
The final event of the summer will see Ashfield Food and Drink Festival at Hucknall return to Hucknall High Street for the third year. The previous years events saw over 4,000 visitors enjoying the different food and drink from the best producers in the East Midlands. This year the event will cover even more of Hucknall’s High Street and will showcase resident’s favourites as well as new traders.
Full details of all the events will be released closer to the event dates. If any businesses would like to sponsor any of the events please contact [email protected]

Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of the Council, said “We are so excited to be able to provide quality free events for our residents. We had an incredible turn out to all our events last year and we can’t wait to see even bigger numbers this year for our Superb Summer!”
