What's on

The Crooked Spire Musical Concert

Event details

This will be the first live performance of the songs and music from The Crooked Spire – a medieval murder-mystery musical.

Set in 1360, the story tells of how John of York comes to Chesterfield to help work on the church spire. Against the backdrop of a society emerging from a global pandemic, he finds intrigue and death all around him. But there is friendship and loyalty too. Can John prove that he did not kill the master carpenter?

A cast of West End actors and professional musicians will perform the songs in The Crooked Spire Church, Chesterfield at 2:00pm on Saturday 16th October. The performance will be directed by Jake Smith who worked with Sting on the musical The Last Ship.


The songs and music are heart-warming and life-affirming and foot tapping. This performance is suitable for age 7 and over.

Tickets £8/£5 (under 18s) from the Tourist Information Centre in Chesterfield or on TicketSource.
