Venues throughout Hope Valley village

Organised by Moors for the Future Partnership and IUCN UK Peatland Programme.

Guided walks, talks, a poetry evening and gardeners’ question time are some of the free, community-focused events that local people can look forward to as part of BogFest. The event provides visitors with the opportunity to find out more about the blanket bogs that form treasured local moorland. Blanket bogs provide a wealth of benefits to us, including supplying clean drinking water, a habitat for special wildlife to call home, and helping to reduce the risk of flooding in local at-risk communities.
