the Ritz cinema in Belper screened the world premiere of a new short film about the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
‘To Where It Begins…’ is a celebration of the diversity and beauty within the Derwent Valley, and has been produced in time for the tenth anniversary of the mills’ inscription on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
The first screening coincided with the first public appearance for the new director of the heritage site, Mark Suggitt. He will be taking up his post in April and said: “I am excited to be working in such an important and fascinating area. The site offers many challenges and opportunities and I look forward to working with the partners to develop and promote it further.”
