We have had loads of positive feedback and some great improvement opportunities which we are putting in place.
So 2018 will see more artists, more venues, more music, more happening on the streets between venues and more food venues.
We are just thinking about various other events throughout the year.
There will certainly be a christmas event featuring arts trail artists, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Next year the Belper Arts Festival will be in its 6th year.
The festival is growing and has already made its mark on Derbyshire’s cultural calendar.
With Belper and Derbyshire overflowing with artistic talent we felt Belper really needed an interactive trail of creativity which we are aiming to grow each year to be a key Derbyshire event.
We also work closely with Belper Town Council and Amber Valley Borough Council to make the streets of Belper more vibrant and colourful in the run up to the Arts Festival.
Thank you to JJ Beardsley, Jim Bell, Geraldine Curtis, Tony Fisher, Rachel Ormsby-Ashworth and all the exhibiting artists and makers for the use of their photographs on this website.
