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),

BLUE FUNK in BELPER

Funky live jazz in Belper Memorial Gardens

Date and time

Saturday 6yh August 2022 – 12:00 – 13:00 BST

Location

Memorial Gardens, King Street, Belper, DE56 1PZ

About this Event

BLUE FUNK is driven by Matt Ratcliffe's Hammond Organ sound. His electric keyboards was such a hit with you all with Tony Kofi's INSIDE STRAiGHT last summer that we asked Matt to lead this year's band.

Just as last year and with LOOSEN UP in 2020 BLUE FUNK deliver a "good-time" - "soul-jazz" vibe.

This isn't a "Festival" - no mud, no food franchises, no portaloos just a free gig in your local park.

The gig is free to you but Derby Jazz is paying good rehearsal and performance fees so it's costing us.

YOU CAN HELP US AND SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION BY MAKING A DONATION.

Tickets

Tickets for BLUE FUNK in BELPER can be booked here.
