Live & Local


Live & Local brings a wide range of professional shows to rural communities in Derbyshire and neighbouring counties. So, if you’re young or older, and like theatre, music, dance, story-telling, puppetry, or other live performance types, on your doorstep, then Live & Local is for you!

As the time of publication, the 2016/17 season will have ended, with attendances at the Crich Glebe Field Centre being at record levels, and every show selling out well before its performance date. Many thanks to everyone who has supported us – your continued backing means we will have raised about £3k for the Glebe this season alone.

We have put in our bid for the next (2017/18) season. Details will be published in the summer edition of CACN and on the Glebe website

We have put on twenty-four shows in the last five years, entertaining well over 2,200 people, and raising nearly £9k for the Glebe, which is a registered charity.

The success of these events depends on a small team. We are looking for more people to help with all the small jobs that need doing, whether it’s putting up posters, handing out a few leaflets, setting out tables and chairs, or clearing up afterwards – any help would be very much appreciated – please contact David Lane (details below) if you would like to get involved.

Come and talk to us at our stand at the Crich Fête on July 15th.

Live & Local is a scheme run as part of the National Rural Touring Forum specifically for the Midlands. Its aim is to promote the appearance of top quality professional performers and musicians in small intimate rural locations, accessible to as wide a range of the community as possible. Subsidies negotiated by Live and Local with Arts Council England, Derbyshire County Council, and Amber Valley Borough Council mean we can bring excellent professional shows to Crich & Holloway at an affordable price.
