Every June near the summer solstice, the village holds a week long festival known as Wakes. There are a number of activities & events culminating in "Big Saturday", which includes a large scale procession with dressed floats & improvised costumes, followed by an evening torchlight procession led by Tideswell brass band playing a unique tune called "The Tideswell Processional" accompanied by villagers dancing a traditional weaving dance. Tideswell Makers Market is usually held inside St John Baptist during June.

for good quality hand made food.
