Belper’s Wartime Secret Walk

This circular walk looks at Belper's little-known wartime secrets. During the Second World War, Belper played a key role in the Allied victory.

Even many of those living in the town at the time have no idea of what was happening right under their noses. This walk tells the story of the secret wartime work that took place in Belper and visits the sites involved.

Distance: 3.5 miles. Duration: 2.5 hours. Price: £5.00

Start point: Shortlands Car Park, Chesterfield Road (opposite St Peter's Church),

Bold, creative and original; Tannara have established themselves as one of the UK’s most interesting and unique contemporary folk groups.

Since the band’s formation in 2014 they’ve covered considerable musical ground. With a background in Scotland’s native traditions, their ceaseless musical development is a melting pot of ideas, genres and sounds: From indie rock to electronica, as well as Scotland’s vibrant and diverse folk scene.

Unafraid to experiment, their music is an electrifying meeting place for a world of sounds: Punchy and clean, riotous and gritty, tender and honest. On fiddle, harp, guitar, accordion and vocals, Tannara make an intensely considered musical world which is uniquely theirs.

Their approach has seen them to many successes: From the 2016 release of their debut album “Trig” (produced by Rachel Newton) to great critical acclaim, to an enthusiastic reception from audiences at venues and festivals across the world, with highlights including Cambridge Folk Festival, La Festival Interceltique de Lorient, as well as a host of others.Their successes continued into 2019, with the release of their second album “Strands” at Celtic Connections festival, followed by an extensive touring schedule both in the UK and abroad.



KATIE SPENCER + SPINDRIFT AT THE QUEENS HEAD, BELPER,. OCTOBER 9. Doors at 7.30.

Tickets £8 available at the pub or reserve through mjones572@hotmail.co.uk.

Because of covid awareness, admission only through pre- purchase or reservation.

KATIE SPENCER is at the vanguard of the 'new folk' with her debut album 'Weather Beaten' attracting critical praise and the respect of senior members of the acoustic scene. Echoing the work of such greats as John Martyn, Bert Jansch and Sandy Denny , her virtuoso guitar accompaniments embroider tapestries of song with a rare maturity of composition.

In Support SPINDRIFT bring their highly original and powerful fusion of guitar,cello and soulful vocals.

Music is finally coming home and it would be a big mistake to miss this one.

A Dynamic Dru yoga dance class, combining flowing sequences and mudras to energise and empower.

About this event – Dru Yoga Dance:

Dru Dance is a dynamic fusion of Dru Yoga sequences and classical Indian dance movements, combined with mudras (hand gestures), visualisations and powerful affirmations, to create a beautiful flowing sequence to inspiring music.

The class begins with 'flow-ins' to warm up, then the 'dance' is taught phrase by phrase, giving you plenty opportunity to anchor the movements. A cool-down and relaxation to close helps harness the energetics of the movement.

Although a reasonable level of fitness is required, the class is suitable for beginners to Dru Yoga, and modifications are given for the more dynamic poses.

Investment includes:

* Live class teaching, 2 hour class

* A pdf/printed outline of the dance phrases and symbology

* Access to a one-hour recorded class, to help you enjoy the dance at home

* A Dru/Weleda 'goodie bag' for you to take home
