About the Repton Festival

The Repton Festival is a not-for-profit company of professional volunteers that provides a festival experience for those interested in the Arts in South Derbyshire and beyond.

Founded in 2018, we’ve come a long way since our first festival, building on our initial success by adding more artists, new events and new venues within our beautiful historic village.

For 2022 we're delighted to be offering a fabulous '3 in1 festival package' comprising a Litfest '22, Kidsfest '22 and our very first Filmfest '22 running from 8th -10th July 2022!
