After an absence of four years, the Belper Short Play Festival will return in 2019.
Short Play Co-Ordinator SUE REANEY said “The Short Play Festival and the Belperamble which followed were very successful. When local writers and actors suggested bringing short plays back into the Festival programme I was thrilled to take on the challenge.”
Sergei Podobedov has been described by conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky as: "a magnificent
pianist who possesses outstanding virtuosic skills combined with true musicality and a refined sense
of style." Known as one of the world's finest pianists, Sergei is set to play a concert in Belper.
