Our Duffield

1976 saw a revival of Duffield Carnival after a lapse of 37 years. Since then it has been held annually and grown steadily. We have programmes going back to the Silver Jubilee celebrations of 1977 and then from 1980 right up to present day. Thanks to Derek Cook, Secretary of the DCA for years, this record has been preserved. Since those early days the carnival has been a huge part of village life, and there have been some changes along the way. The route used to start at the Scarsdale pub, now Il Forno, and moved to Avenue Rd in 1980. In 1983 the carnival procession and fete day expanded into the Carnival Week we recognise today. The first fell race was over 4 miles in that year, and it became the Duffield 5 in 1984.
