Peak Cavern is a popular venue at the moment as the Village Screen returns for underground film shows.

There may still be tickets on Wednesday (August 8) for 80s horror/comedy vampire story Lost Boys, following two teenage brothers who move to a small town in north California and discover a peculiar gang of bikers and mysterious deaths. A second showing and one of The Goonies have sold out, though.

Monday (August 6) sees the start of Summer Magna Mayhem, with an indoor inflatable adventure zone at the science discovery centre running for 10 days.

Magna say: “Kids can bounce, boing, jump, slide, bop and boogie for a full 75 minutes of high adrenaline fun. Our purpose-built indoor world of adventure is a safe environment for children of all ages to let off steam and be active during the school holidays.”

Events at Matlock Farm Park this weekend include a visit by the 7ft tall Hulkbuster, a famous costume worn by Marvel Comics hero Iron Man, on Saturday (August 4) and a Cinderella show on Sunday.

There are also lunchtime Punch and Judy shows on Sunday and Monday.

Amazing women is the theme of the next Discovery Days at Weston Park Museum, linked to the current Circus! Show of Shows exhibition.
