Arts Derbyshire’s Free Exhibition at Masson Mills is Showing For a Further 2 days Over the 26th & 27th April

We’re thrilled to announce that our curated exhibition of Derbyshire artists continues at the historic Masson Mills in Cromford for a further two days, over the 26th and 27th of April.

The exhibition showcases a host of local artists and artisans for an extended time, with the work being available to buy alongside a pop-up shop of prints, with sales commission going towards the Arts Derbyshire fundraiser. The Masson Mills tour is also available to book, so enjoy a fascinating trip through time before popping into the welcoming cafe to enjoy a cup of coffee and a slice of cake.

  • The tour takes approximately 90 minutes and begins in the Visitor Centre.
As a charity, the team at Arts Derbyshire is constantly seeking fundraising options to help us continue our work in the county, supporting artists, makers and performers to help them thrive. We wanted to run a fundraiser event this year – our first ever! – and so what better way to do this than using our fundraising event as a vehicle to showcase some of the amazing talent in the county at the same time?
The exhibition is free to visit (parking charges apply) and is open 10am – 4pm.
