Following more than two years of negotiations, Derwent Valley Council have signed an agreement with Salamanca Arts Centre (SAC) allowing SAC and Derwent Valley Arts (DVA) to utilise the The Barracks building in Willow Court.

The agreement will enable the commencement of an on-going community arts and cultural events program and develop a strong ongoing arts presence in the area, helping continue activation of the Willow Court precinct.

Derwent Valley Mayor Ben Shaw says “Derwent Valley Council is committed to supporting the growth of arts and culture in the region. We have a growing population from the arts community moving to, and visiting the Valley and this is a step in the right direction for continued growth."

Hi all, this looks like a good fun thing to do on a lazy Sunday, get over to High Street and surrounds, look at some cool cars and support the businesses that will stay open for the day..
I’ve met with these guys and this is a lead in to what could be something big for NN in regards to car shows. So get along and support, or even join in the ride if you have a nice old car.

***From Tony the organiser.***
