The One World Festival returns to New Mills this year - and is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The festival will take place at High Lea Park on Saturday, from 12pm to 6pm. Among the acts taking place this year are musicians including Natalie Joan, who has written songs for ITV’s Vera, international folk musician Richard Lomax, local favourite White Van Man and returning performer Adam Hutchins.

Barbara Walmsley, who is a volunteer for the festival, said: “I think it’s the people of New Mills that make the event special because they come along every year and they love it.”

Over 70 local businesses and individuals donated items to the New Mills Under the Hammer auction which helps fund the event each year.

New Mills Town Council and Visit New Mills have also helped fund the event, which draws several thousand festival-goers annually.
