As a charitable organisation we are extremely grateful to be supported by the following local businesses and organisations, who all help to make Bakewell Country Festival a great day out for the whole family.




Frederick’s Ice Cream has been a Derbyshire stalwart for over 120 years since it was established by the family's Italian grandfather, Angelo.

The unique recipe developed by the Frederick family is still used today, earning them the title of Silver Challenge Cup Winner six times over in the National Ice Cream Competition.

No event is complete without Fredericks' iconic orange and yellow ice cream vans and we are delighted to welcome them not only as local traders at Bakewell Country Festival, but as one of our Principal Partners for the event.

After working in industries using harsh chemical products for a number of years, Jennifer Walker founded Bee Safe supplies in order to create environmentally friendly, ethically sourced products and packaging.

Products in the range include an anti-bacterial surface spray, anti-bacterial hand sanitiser, natural lip salve, honeys, beeswax food wraps and more.

A percentage of the proceeds from each product sold goes towards improving the environment and increasing the general bee population. This includes planting flowers, seeds and trees and buying hives and colonies of bees.


Additional responsibility is ensured through personal bee keeping and using the wax, honey and comb as a sustainable ingredient in as many of their products as possible.
