Warp & Weft: Bringing DerwentWISE to Life

Community Events
Saturday 19 January 2019

A musical celebration of the Lower Derwent Valley, composed by John Crossley and performed by Sigma 7 and Derwent Brass.

Journey through time from before cotton mills dominated the river valley, to the heyday of the world's first factory system, to the decimating effect of the Great War, to present day Derbyshire. 

An exciting collision of contemporary sounds fused with traditional brass band, inspired by the valley's natural and industrial heritage, sharing the stories of this special landscape and its people.

DerwentWISE is a five-year project to inspire and enable us to care for the Lower Derwent Valley. Hosted by Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and funded by Heritage Lottery Funds.

With thanks to DerwentWISE, HLF and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust
