World of the Workers; Strutt Community Tour

Location Belper  – Price from £7.50


The Community, built from 1785 onwards to house the workers in the Strutt family cotton spinning mills is considered to be the oldest surviving textile workers’ community in England – in Belper, the oldest cotton spinning town in the world. It is just a short walk to the mills, a route that the workers would have taken six days a week for their 12-hour working day. Investigate the Short Rows, walk up Long Row hearing the stories of the Community and its residents. See for yourself why Long Row is once seen and never forgotten. Why did the Strutt family need to build so many houses? What did the children do? What did their mothers and fathers do? Visit the Unitarian Chapel learning about Jedediah Strutt, the founder of the Strutt family cotton empire and the role that Unitarianism played in the Industrial Revolution. Nailers, framework knitters, cheviners and navvies all feature in the history of the Community. Hear what part they played in the growth of Belper and how the Strutts transformed the lives of their mill workers and the nailing hamlet of Belper into a thriving hub of the emerging cotton textile industry.

Please note: some streets in this older part of Belper are steep and uneven. The tour lasts about one hour.

2024 dates: April 14 2pm, October 6 2pm.

Sheku & Isata Kanneh Mason ‘Cello & Piano in Harmony’

In 2024 St. Peter’s Church in Belper celebrates its 200th birthday.

29 October 2024 – 7:30 pm

 Events throughout the year will climax with a very special concert featuring cellist SHEKU KANNEH MASON and his pianist sister ISATA.

Sheku shot to fame in 2016 when he won the BBC Young Musician Of The Year, aged 16.

Two years later he performed at the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle.

In 2023 he was the guest soloist at The Last Night Of The Proms. It is one of only a handful of recitals that Sheku will play in the UK during 2024.

Isata attended the Royal College Of Music on the prestigious Sir Elton John Scholarship. In 2013 Isata performed with Sir Elton in Los Angeles. Isata has recorded four albums, including the chart topping ‘Muse’ which was a collaboration with Sheku.

“These are two of the biggest names in classical music. They are leading a new generation of perormers. I am thrilled and excited to have secured a performance to celebrate the the bicentenary of St Peter’s church. It is a concert that will be remembered for a lifetime.”
