Active Projects

Youth Revolution- Award For All

This is a project that aims to provide new opportunities for young people to experience workshops of their choice and then share their new found skills with others. So far we have had Street Dance Classes and a Singing Group that performed at a community event. As a result Sporting Future's have continued to provide physical activities locally. New consultations will start shortly to identify what comes next. An unexpected reult of this project had been identifying the need for a womens group in the area. We started with a picnic at Chatsworth and have come up with a number of activities desired by this new awesome and hopefully growing group.


Women's Yoga - Health & Wellbeing

This is our first installment of Health & Wellbeing programme for local women. Currently made possible due to the generosity of Yoga Instructor Natalie and partners Barrow Hill Primary Academy who let us use their hall when the club is booked.


This activity is on hold and will be starting again soon, led by our partners Derbyshire County Council Health & Wellbeing Team. Please check back for updates.

The Roundhouse Presents - Down The Line

Your community needs you.

We're looking for actors, singers, musicians, designers,

backstage crew and general help. No experience necessary


"Down The Line" performances will be from 21st - 23rd Sept

and the show will feature guest appearances by two of the

world's most famous engines:  "The Flying Scotsman" and "Stephenson's Rocket". The show also features Ireland Colliery Brass Band and local community choirs.
