Last Chance - MPDD Business Impact Survey closes 23:59 today

As the full impact of the Coronavirus affects us all, we understand that everyone in our sector is facing serious challenges, both immediate and in the coming weeks. We are working hard to ensure that you have support in place, both now, and once this crisis is over, so that we can all survive and then start to rebuild and recover as quickly as possible once we are able to welcome visitors to this wonderful part of the country.

Fleet Arts statement concerning Covid 19

With the current, escalated seriousness and Government advice on social distancing/hygiene with regards to Covid 19, it is with a heavy heart that we have paused all project workshops and events, both outside and inside of our venue, until further notice. 

We have done this in the best interests of protecting staff, all the people who use our venue and/or attend our or others’ activities.

A Note From Haarlem Artspace

It's a very strange time just now, and we haven't sent out a 'Covid19 update' or a 'Gallery closed' email or even a ‘Support us during this time' email because I'm sure you must be bombarded with these sorts of emails, and just now, we really don't want to ask anything of you at all other than connection.

In amongst the uncertainty, we just want to extend a hand virtually and your well wishes and good vibes would be gratefully received.

Dronfield Hall Barn Produce Shop - Open from Monday!

Following Government advice, we regret to inform that the Barn café will be closed till further notice. But we recognise that these are tricky times for many of our regular customers who live in the local community, and we want to do our bit to help you in any way we can.

All 45 of our libraries, the Buxton Museum and Art Gallery and the Derbyshire Record Office in Matlock are to temporarily close at 5pm today (Friday 20 March) to protect staff and customers using the services from the risk of coronavirus and to help to prevent its spread.
