The event will take place on Friday, August 5, from 6pm, starting at the Poet and Castle Pub in Codnor.

An evening of entertainment will include a mile-long guided tour of the Castle followed by a pie meal and a free drink. Guests will also have the chance to talk to the castle trustees. Tickets cost £15 or £12.50 for trust members and are available from the Poet and Castle Pub, Alfreton Road, Codnor. All proceeds from the evening will go to the trust, which works to preserve the ancient ruin.
