George Jones and Pippa Mansel have opened the Market Place venue which has been closed for two years

as a not-for-profit social enterprise.

The sixty-person capacity hall will provide a community space in the centre of the town, available for hire to groups, businesses and individuals.

Pippa said: We are very excited about being able to offer a quality space connected so directly to the town centre. We hope that people will see this as an opportunity to link indoor and outdoor activities.

We envisage a winning combination of refreshments, displays and activities.

There will be a cafe - as planned for every Farmers Market day

The charging structure means that voluntary organisations benefit from a rate and small local businesses, local residents and local authorities from a concessionary rate.

In a big boost for the new enterprise, Belper Arts Festival has booked No28,  The refurbished hall will act as the festival information point and box office as well as hosting a full programme including exhibitions, performances and workshops,

Other activities are planned through the year,

It is hoped to revive the halls long-standing community connection. The old Angel Inn was demolished in the 1920s to make way for the building of the Salvation Army Hall in the 1930s, which closed in 2011.

No28 would like people to contact them for bookings and ideas for the use of the hall - in particular, for popular town events, such as the July and Christmas food festivals via email at or by phoning 01773 825693

Watch out for Arts and Craft items at No 28 on Market Days

plus a cafe selling hot and cold food and drinks.
