Come and be inspired by the work of High Peak Community Arts and celebrate the launch of the new 'Friends of High Peak Community Arts' scheme. See our participants' work, listen to music, drink wine, eat cheese, and be captivated by the poetry of our special guest, Derbyshire Poet Laureate Helen Mort.

Described by Carol Ann Duffy as "among the brightest stars in the sparkling constellation of young British poets", Helen Mort is one of High Peak Community Arts' Ambassadors. Helen will be reading extracts from her writing during the evening.

"As a Derbyshire writer inspired by the county's varied landscape and rich heritage, I admire and value the work charities like High Peak Arts do to make people aware of how art and place intersect and to support local artists. The High Peak is a rare, unique part of the world and it will always be at the heart of my poetry. We need to celebrate Derbyshire's artistic life however we can." (Helen Mort)
The evening will also involve a silent auction of captivating work by a range of talented High Peak artists.

Do hope you can join us for what will be a very special evening.
