to the Mickleover website. For although it is a suburb of
Derby, Mickleover has its own identity and is often referred to as “The Village”
by locals. This site has been created to bring together
information from a wide range of sources into one place, to give residents,
visitors and those considering a move here a good overall picture of everything
you can do in the village.

The next event will be
the Mickleover by the Sea on Sunday 28th August. Come along from 12noon
and enjoy the Beach, Punch and Judy, Surfing, Funfair, Food and
for more details.
Our most recent event
was the Mickleover Summer Fete, held in the centre of the village and
enjoyed by over 8000 people. Part of the main road was closed to make room
for the funfair, stalls, food and entertainment.
We had planned to have
our 2015 Christmas Festival on Advent Sunday, 29th Nov. Unfortunately it
had to be called off at the last moment because of the high wind and the
consequent danger of injury and damage. It was the first event that we
have had to call off due to bad weather. We look forward to our new
programme for 2016.

Each year we have also held a Scarecrow Festival in September
These were the
Scarecrows at the Methodist Church in the 2015 Scarecrow Festival.
in 2014, we also held
a Giant Water Slide on the 7th September. This became
a nationally recognised event and attracted visitors from all over the
country. It was held on Kipling Drive. Sponsored by Huub and MBS, the
proceeds went to Cancer UK.
