We’re inviting you to help create the longest strand of bunting possible, inspired by the history of Darley Abbey! This is part of Constella OperaBallet’s ‘Spin A Tale’ arts commission, and will be installed throughout Darley Abbey from 8th May 2021, to celebrate Darley Abbey Day, and the rich heritage of the village.
‘Spin A Tale 2021’ is the final major arts commission for the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Great Place Scheme – find out more and register for the online event here: Spin A Tale 2021
