Illuminations Village Favourite

The Matlock Bath Illuminations for 2016 drew to a close at the end of October. Each year during the season, the village has a Friday evening when the Illuminated Boats row especially for the residents and businesses who come down to the Derwent Gardens to enjoy this wonderful spectacle. To us, the Illuminated Boats are the Illuminations. They are the reason that the Illuminations exist – the candlelit boats started the event over 100 years ago.

During their visit to the gardens, the residents voted for their favourite Illuminated Boat. Prizes were awarded as follows:

1st prize of dinner at the New Bath Hotel Hogwarts Express by The Motley Bunch

2nd prize of dinner at High Tor Hotel Dragonfly – Paul Henshall

3rd prize of a meal voucher at The Balti Somewhere beyond the Derwent – David Harrison

4th prize of a meal voucher at China Rose Ship in a Bottle – Michael Hall

All the other boatbuilders received a bottle of wine. These awards are our small thank you to the boatbuilders who put many hours of hard work into both designing and making their boats each year and then rowing then on the river every Saturday and Sunday evening for the 8-week season. The Parish Council is grateful for the kind sponsorship received from the restaurants in the village which makes these awards possible.
