Things To Do

Belper Arts Trail

29 August 2021 - 30 August 2021

The 8th Belper Arts Trail takes place around the town centre at community centres, shops, businesses, pubs, churches and some private houses.

The 8th Belper Arts Trail will take place this year on Sunday 29th August and Bank Holiday Monday 30th August. It will again be focused, as usual, around the centre of Belper involving community centres, shops, businesses, pubs, churches and some private houses.

Captain Dan and his pirate crew will be here looking for crewmates. There will be an excellent choice of things for the family along with music throughout the town.

Sadly we all know what happened in 2020 and we decamped to an Online Trail which, whilst very worthwhile, was not the real thing!

As we look to try and emerge from the Covid nightmare we are hopeful that an event of some form will take place in August. The exact nature of this will emerge in the coming months as we grapple with lockdown easing and trying to manage the environment that will be in place by then. So please bear with us!
