Arts Derbyshire Fundraiser and Showcase Event, 25-27 April 2024 – Artists Call Out

As a charity, the team at Arts Derbyshire is always looking for funding opportunities to help us continue supporting artists, makers and performers across the county.

In 2024 we’re running our first ever fundraising event – and what better way to do it than to showcase some of the amazing talent the county has to offer.

On 25 April, we’ll be taking up residence in the atmospheric surroundings of the historic Masson Mills in Cromford for a very special evening of entertainment. The event will include an art sale and exhibition, music, dance and spoken word – all by Derbyshire artists including the raindogs, poet and performer Mark Gwynne-Jones and dancer Mairead Rutter O’Connor.
