Festival Fever

Belper is bursting at the seams with events, from arts and theatre to live music and discovery days.

As one of the most vibrant Market Towns in the UK, there’s always something going on in Belper. With a calendar full of events, live music, markets and theatre you’ll never be stuck for something to do.

The annual festivals and events regularly attract large audiences to the town, while keeping a great sense of community at the forefront. If it’s art, music and a fabulous two days out for the family then look no further than the Belper Arts Trail. Our very own eco festival Belper Goes Green will return after an absence in June. Belper Fringe has a multitude of different events organised throughout the year. In summer the largest event of all, the Food Festival will take place and as summer progresses Pride in Belper returns with an even bigger and more colourful parade.

At the moment the events calendar for this year is still in its infancy and will be built up as we know more.
