Back for Sixth Year

Preparations are well under way for the sixth Belper Arts Festival. It will run from 6 to 28 May 2018.

Already confirmed is the fast growing Arts Trail ( 6 / 7 May), the Music Festival at St. Peter's (13 -19 May), the enchanting Woollen Woods (12 – 19 May) and Belper Open Houses (26 – 28 May).

Following the huge success of the World War One play 'Hamp' last year, Larry Waller returns to the directors chair to bring 'Nell Gwynn' by Jessica Swale. Originally commissioned by the Globe Theatre the play won an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2016. It charts the rise of an unlikely heroine who became not only Britain's most celebrated actress but also stole the heart of a King.

The brilliant Megan Gibson will feature in the title role with performances from
17 – 19 May.
