Lost in the hills
10th & 11th MAy

Lost in the Hills is our annual live music and arts festival. Based at the ancient stone-built Watts Russell Arms in the heart of the Peak District National Park, with a line up of contemporary and eclectic live music. 

It's all about creativity and connection, with space and time for everyone to get involved, whether it's in our jam sessions or creative workshops or simply connecting with like-minded people. We're open to new ideas and experiments and we want you share in our passion for creativity

Take some time to immerse yourself in the beautiful terraced gardens, experience the gorgeous countryside with one of our recommended walks, and explore the connections between art and nature through inspiring workshops, eco-conscious craft stalls and links to local rewilding and tree-planting initiatives.

Creative Peaks is an arts and music organisation, joining the dots between sound, words, image, movement and the natural world. Based at the Watts Russell Arms, an ancient stone-built venue nestled between the River Dove and Thor’s Cave in the Peak District National Park, and supported by the Arts Council, Creative Peaks brings together creatives with an emphasis on improvisation, experimentation and collaboration.

We hosted a programme of concerts throughout 2023, including performances by Skylla, Tamsin Elliott & Tarek Elazhary, Dudu Kouate, String Beats, Old Spot, Millicent Chapanda, Juliette Lemoine, Guohan, Wychbury, Auka and Two Mirrors.  We're currently working with Dubrek Studios on A Vibrant Sound, a programme of multicultural concerts at their amazing new venue in Derby.

Watch this space for a programme of events at the Watts Russell Arms and a selection of independent venues in 2024. We'll also be hosting jam sessions, arts workshops, literary events and artisan food events.


If you can't make it to one of our events (or if you've been to one and want to re-live the experience), you can watch hours of  live performances on our YouTube channel...
