Ashgate Hospice > New family-friendly Tractor Fest event coming to Derbyshire

 A new family-friendly Tractor festival coming to Derbyshire this Spring – and kids can attend for FREE! 

Tractor Test is being organised in support of Ashgate Hospice and is set to take place at the Storforth Lane Industrial Estate in Hasland, Chesterfield on 26 March. 

From vintage vehicles to modern machinery – there will be a huge collection of tractors on display as well as fun activities, including mini tractor driving, colouring, arts and crafts and more. 

The event, which is being held by Harold Lilleker & Sons Ltd in support of the hospice, costs £3 for adults and is free for children under the age of 11.  

Jack Wood, Head of Fundraising at Ashgate Hospice, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Tractor Fest to Chesterfield this March in conjunction with Harold Lilleker & Sons! 

“We’re so excited about this event as it promises to be a super fun day out for family and friends across North Derbyshire and beyond. 

“Whether you’re a self-confessed petrol head or just looking for a day out with the family, there’ll be plenty on offer to keep you covered. 

“The event will be taking place at our retail and fundraising headquarters in Hasland; so once you’ve finished browsing the engines on display, you can pop into our furniture store and clearance shop for a spot of shopping or stop by Ashgate Coffee Co for a cuppa and a bite to eat!” 

All proceeds from Tractor Fest will help fund vital care for patients and families who need the care of the hospice. 

The charity must raise £8 million each year so it can continue providing palliative and end of life care to people across North Derbyshire. 

Pre-purchased tickets are not needed for the event and the entry fee can be paid on the gate. 

The event will be taking place between 10am and 3pm. Its location can be found by searching S41 0QD into a satnav.  

Any owners of a tractor or other farming vehicles who would like to showcase their vehicles are invited to contact the hospice directly to arrange this.
