SHIRLEY MANN a former BBC journalist who then ran her own media company and started writing novels in her 60s. She is now on number four. The books are about women during the second world war her second winning the 2021 Romantic Saga of the The Year Award. Shirley believes the emergence of a third career at this stage of her life is proof that it is never too late to try something new.

PHIL WHITNEY born in Lancashire, grew up in Derbyshire before graduating in Italian and the History of art before spending several years teaching English in Italy soaking up the culture and getting ideas for stories.

TRICIA DURDEY dances, teaches movement and writes. Her novel The Green Table published in 2015 was inspired by the choreographer Kurt Joose who resisted the Nazis and refused to dismiss his Jewish dancers. Her second novel is based in Germany during WW2 and London in 1974. She is currently working on a memoir.

ANDY MILLER born in the Lost Children Hut on Weymouth beach in Dorset, the local maternity hospital being full as a result of the “baby bulge” after WW2. He has had various articles and poetry published in a range of magazines and in 2011 won the Yeovil Poetry Prize.

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),

This circular walk around Belper looks at the various lost industries of the world's first cotton mill town. It begins with the cotton mills built by the Strutt family at the very beginning of the Industrial Revolution, with a slight diversion to include the picturesque weir on the river, followed by a look at the houses the family built for their workers. From there, the walk looks at the nail-making industry that pre-dated the arrival of the cotton mills, plus the other industries which once provided employment for the town, including hosiery, confectionery, chemicals and engineering.

Unfortunately this venue in not accessible to persons in wheelchairs

Doors at 7:30pm – December 2021

When the faces of one hundred plus people leaving a concert are, without exception, beaming from ear to ear, with many eagerly clutching their newly purchased and signed CDs, it stands a good chance that the evening has been a successful one. Such was the case last night as Ranagri made a triumphant return to St. Edith Hall'. David Pratt FATEA Magazine

Alt folk band Ranagri are 4 Irish and English musicians; combining Voices, Guitar, Bouzouki, Flutes, Whistles, Harp/Electric Harp, Bodhrán/Drums.

Since forming, Ranagri have recorded three studio albums at Grammy Award Winning Record Label Stockfisch Records, with their latest record ‘Playing For Luck’ released in 2019. Acclaimed previous albums are 'Fort of the Hare'. 'The Great Irish Songbook' with pop legend Tony Christie, 'VOICES’ - recorded at Real World Studios and produced by Grammy-nominated producer Graeme Pleeth, and ‘Tradition’, which were both released on Goatskin Records.

Festival performances include Cambridge, Gate to Southwell, Wath, Lyme Folk Weekend, Trinity, Bloom (Dublin) and Purbeck. No strangers to large venues, Ranagri have performed at Birmingham Symphony Hall, Fairfield Halls, The Union Chapel, Buxton Opera House and Camac Harp Festival in France to name a few. Combining their love for world music, they have collaborated with top Indian musician Kuljit Bhamra OBE, and members of Britten Sinfonia at The Bhavan Centre, London.

Touring with Justin Currie (of Del Amitri) at Islington Assembly Hall, Perth Concert Hall, Holmfirth Picturedrome and Cambridge Junction, followed by a tour of Scotland and Germany saw Ranagri writing & recording 'Playing For Luck' released in 2019

2020 - was a very testing year for all, with the cancellation of tours in both Britain and Europe.

Ranagri bunkered down in the studio to write and record their next album TRADITION II, due for release in November 2021

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

Belper’s Lost Industries Walk

This circular walk around Belper looks at the various lost industries of the world's first cotton mill town. It begins with the cotton mills built by the Strutt family at the very beginning of the Industrial Revolution, with a slight diversion to include the picturesque weir on the river, followed by a look at the houses the family built for their workers. From there, the walk looks at the nail-making industry that pre-dated the arrival of the cotton mills, plus the other industries which once provided employment for the town, including hosiery, confectionery, chemicals and engineering.

Distance: 2.8 miles. Duration: 2 to 2.5 hours. Price: £5.00

Start point: The Triangle (junction of A6 Bridge Street and A517 Bridgefoot),

Belper, Derbyshire. – Start time: 10:00am.

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.
