Bakewell Baking Festival
Posted Wednesday, 9th August 2017 at 09:08 AM
Bakewell Baking Festival is back this weekend (Saturday 12th to Sunday 13th August). You can catch our transpeak service from Derby, Matlock, Buxton and Manchester to the festival and we'll drop you off close by. Two kids under 16 travel for free when you buy a TANGO! return- just ask your friendly High Peak driver.
We may see some additional traffic on the roads around the festival which may lead to slight jams. We're hoping there won't be any half-baked traffic schemes to delay our transpeak service and we're rising to the occasion to deliver the best service we can. Let our transpeak service whisk you away and have a great day out.
We should probably stop with the puns, before they go sour (dough).
