Stuck on what to do this weekend? Here are eight great things you could do.

This weekend, June 27 and 28, is going to have highs of 20°C with the occasional thunderstorm. So here are things you can do in the rain and a few you can do in between the showers this weekend in Derbyshire.

1. Cocktail Demonstration

Salute, a family run Chesterfield mobile prosecco, gin and rum bar, is hosting an online cocktail demonstration on Saturday 7pm. Find out more by visiting their Facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/550125825873537/

2. The Cavendish Shopping Arcade, Buxton

From a chocolatier to clothes shops there are several independent shops for you to have a look around.

3. Heights of Abraham to Matlock

See Matlock Bath in a new way on this walk as it takes you higher than the main route in and out. Starting at the Peak District Mining Museum, Matlock Bath, although it is a fairly short walk of 1.6 miles it does involve a short strenuous uphill section. See www.visitpeakdistrict.com for a print out of the walk.

4. Outdoor Record Fair

Held just outside The Grand Pavilion, Matlock Bath, Saturday, 9am to 3pm there will be thousands of records.

5. Online Festival

Derbyshire Dales', Exile Fest is going to be holding online performances from the bands that were booked to perform this year from 7:30pm on Saturday. To find out how to watch visit www.facebook.com/exile.fest/

6. Bakewell

Take a look around the shops and maybe treat yourself to a Bakewell Tart from one of the bakeries. See if you can spot the rainbow trout in the River Wye, they like to hide under the bridges.

7. The Pavilion Gardens, Buxton

From 1pm to 2pm on Saturday, Iron Man and Belle will be doing a sponsored walk of the Broadwalk next to the The Pavilion Gardens. They will be walking ten lengths to raise money for NHS charities. A spokesman said: "Can you slow them down by requesting photos and songs whilst observing social distancing? Come along in your best hero and princess outfits."

8. Stanage Edge Cycle

If you fancy a challenging cycle then this 13 mile around Hope Valley and Stanage Edge, starting at Hathersage Station, is for you. Visit www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk for the route.
