A fortnightly walk-and-talks at Markeaton Park

Fri 15th December 2023, 10.30am -12pm

Markeaton Park

About this Group:

Sometimes we all need someone to talk to – someone that’s not our therapist or our doctor or our family member – but someone who is impartial and isn’t going to try and give advice. We are here for you.

Derbyshire Mind’s MindSpace meet-up is a supportive community group that creates space for us to get together, get some fresh air, meet some new people, and talk and be listened in a friendly and inclusive group.

Come join us for a chat and a gentle walk around Markeaton Park on Friday mornings. The walk might help you think things through, and we are really good at listening.

When and Where?

The groups meet every fortnight at the same location and time – our current MindSpace locations are listed below:

Fridays (Fortnightly) – Markeaton Park
Meet at 10.30am, at the Model Railway Building by the Main Car Park (DE22 3BG) – Car park is Pay and Display

We meet whatever the weather, you can rely on us to be there for you. If it is raining, we just pop on a rain coat. If it is sunny, we just pop on some suncream!

If the weather is extreme however, such as very think snow for instance, then we will move the group to our ‘Plan B café’ location for safety reasons. We will inform you by posting this on our social media pages and by contacting everyone that is booked to attend that week’s session.


If you are thinking of joining us on a MindSpace meet up in your local park we ask that you register your attendance. You only need to do this once.  This is so that we have your contact details needed to add you to our MindSpace database and we can contact you if the walk has to be moved to a cafe due to weather.

After that first registration you are very welcome to just turn up at the park each week/fortnight or whenever suits you.

You can Register Your Attendance here.

You can find all of our upcoming MindSpace walks, and other Enjoying Derbyshire groups, over on our Activities Calendar page.

Time: 10.30am until 11.30/12pm

Cost: Free to adults living in Derbyshire. (The only cost will be your car parking ticket and any refreshments you choose to buy from the cafe)
