Arts & culture

Our Arts Officer is based at Matlock Town Hall and is available to provide advice on funding, contacts and networking and to offer support to people interested in developing the arts. The Arts Development Service welcomes articles for the in-house newsletter artsMATTERS.

Derbyshire Dales hosts a wide range of arts opportunities for local people and visitors.  We aim to enable everyone who lives in, works in, or visits the Derbyshire Dales to take part in and enjoy the arts in all its many forms.
