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.

At Half Term we will be opening our doors to children, when they can drop in (with an

adult) and experience what it was like to be a child in Victorian times.

They will have the opportunity to take part in activities including dressing up as a Victorian child,

playing Victorian games, making a peg doll, constructing an osier (willow) bird feeder, having a go

at a simple form of spinning and becoming a young archivist.

Our “Half Term Happening”  will take place Monday - Wednesday Feb 19th, 20th and 21st

February.  Drop in anytime between 10.30 - 3pm.  £2.50 per child, accompanying adult free.

The Other Half. Belper

Thursday Feb 22 2018 at 8:00 pm

Venue Belper Rugby Club, Derby Road, Belper, Derbyshire

THE OTHER HALF by Mark Billingham and My Darling Clementine

An original story, inspired and soundtracked by the music of My Darling Clementine.

Pain, loss, violence. The lifeblood of crime fiction, but also the dark seam that runs through the very best country music. In this unique collaboration between bestselling crime-writer Mark Billingham and acclaimed country artists My Darling Clementine (Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish), song and story come together in a powerful and moving show exploring the everyday tragedies of ordinary people falling in and out of love. In a Memphis diner, three couples tell their very different stories. The bliss and the heartbreak; desire, death and domestic horror. That long and difficult search for the other half… Box Office: 07743 957 017

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. However, as those "in the know" never really talked about what they were doing, many people today have no idea of just how important a place it was. 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),

Belper, Derbyshire, DE56 1FB. – Start time: 10:00am.
