Sited in the historic and communal centre of Wirksworth, St Mary’s Churchyard, the 2018 Community Celebration Event is truly a festival of performing arts talent, recognising and celebrating the wealth of local performing arts activity and achievement at all ages.

Between 1pm and 6pm two stages will provide a platform for a continuous programme of  music, theatre and dance – expect favourites such as the BMW Band, The Fordhams, The Urban Choir, St Johns St Theatre, Moving Together Dance, Maypole Dancers, Brian Boothby as well as new treats such as the Alphorn Trio, Hannah Rose Dance, and Soul Voices.

There will be art, drumming and Maypole Dance workshops; a story tent for young children and much more. Some light refreshments will be available.

The event will culminate with a Tea Dance from 6.00 –  7.00pm at the new Memorial Gardens Square, for all to join in and enjoy, led by a teacher who will show basic dance moves to the keen but uninitiated, sure to get you dancing!

Bring your picnic blankets and sun chairs, settle in and celebrate our wonderful creative community – soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the fun!
