COLOUR AND FORM - a new exhibition at gallerytop

'Colour and Form' is our new exhibition which opens this Saturday, 7 October, at 11.00. It would be great if you can make it for wine and refreshments and some inspirational new work. If you can't make Saturday, the exhibition runs until 5 November and we're open every day except Monday.

We asked the artist Val Hudson to curate the show and she has chosen many artists who we are showing for the first time. There are several artists local to Derbyshire and others much further afield.

Buxton International Festival Book Weekend: Buxton’s Age of Decadence

Buxton’s heyday in the Edwardian era was a prime example of how Britain’s Age of Decadence changed our country, controversial author and newspaper columnist Simon Heffer will demonstrate at the town’s International Festival Book Weekend in November.

Simon, famous for his political commentary in the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail, has lifted the lid on the poverty and suffering during the period before the First World War which is usually remembered as a time when Britain was a powerful, contented, orderly and thriving country.


Preparations are well under way for the sixth Belper Arts Festival. It will run from 6 to 28 May 2018.

Already confirmed is the fast growing Arts Trail ( 6 / 7 May), the Music Festival at St. Peter's (13 -19 May), the enchanting Woollen Woods (12 – 19 May) and Belper Open Houses (26 – 28 May)


After a three year break the hugely successful Belper Passion play returns to the streets and churches of the town in 2018. The performance will see a move to a traditional setting with Roman soldiers and costumes of the period. With a new director, Jannice Richtof, and a new script by George Gunby, the performance is being produced by Churches Together in Belper.

The event will include The Walk Of Witness which has attracted up to 800 people in the past.
