Hot news in case you haven’t heard – the Belper Community Play received the full grant application from the Arts Council so there will be a play in Belper, Spring 2023.

The planning has begun so we are reaching out to everyone that we spoke to last year. So, individuals, community groups, activity groups, anyone that asked about it and that we came into contact with.

We know that many folk were unable to come to the workshops last year, we were still juggling with COVID restrictions and high cases. However, now things have eased we are delighted to be able to push forward to hold our official launch on Saturday 17th September 2022, 1-3pm at Strutts Community Centre. Please pop it in your diary and come meet the Creative Team and find out a bit more about the play.
