Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the screen/scenes? Throughout June we will be featuring our staff that have been part of the #LibrariesFromHome team. They are just stopping by and saying hello and are highlighting what they like to do and read and what they have been working on, from eBook reviews, cookery demonstrations to staying in touch with our home library service customers.
Derbyshire Libraries are supporting this year’s Summer Reading Challenge which is going digital – with events and activities happening online.
Whilst touring theatre company Oddsocks Productions are unable to appear at Markeaton Park, Derby this summer, they are making the most of the fact that they are a family run company and are creating performances from home during lockdown.
Please find here details of our latest creative offering for people to get involved in during lockdown…our ‘Moooovie’ project in conjunction with the now world famous ‘The Belper Moo’!
We have cancelled Derbyshire Woodland Festival, due to take place on 19 and 20 September at Elvaston Castle Country Park, along with many other events planned for our countryside sites.
Exquisite puppets, music dedications to loved ones, nature-inspired animated projections, a good dose of tomfoolery, and a cheeky game of bingo will all feature in the new Remote Access programme as part of First Art’s Go the Distance Festival.
Throughout late May and June, Uninvited Guests and Fuel, Urban Projections, Half a String, Wild N Beets and Tit for Tat will present their works via the Internet, with a focus on audiences in Mansfield, Ashfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire.

Like everyone, we've spent the last few weeks adjusting to the new ground rules. Having had to close the Distillery shop and postpone our tours and other events in mid-March, we've focused our efforts online and with local delivery. And we would like to say a big thank you to all our supporters!
