The Glebe often rings to the sound of music, whether it’s the children of Crich Junior School entertaining the Luncheon Club on a Wednesday; the soundtracks of the regular dance and movement classes, or the professional performers who have played at major venues around the world. We’re also booked regularly by organisations and individuals, either for fundraising concerts, or to promote health and wellbeing.
The Glebe is used by Live & Local to put on professional shows for the community – a mix of theatre, music of all types, dance, and children’s shows. Our team of volunteers try to put on a show a month, but could do more if we had more helpers!
The venue is fully wheelchair-accessible, and we make every effort to assist anyone who has specific needs – our shows are for everyone. All profits from these shows go to the Glebe, to support its activities. The line-up for next season isn’t complete, but our music programme should have a mixture of folk, classical, musical theatre, gypsy jazz, and world. We’re also delighted to welcome virtuoso guitarist Remi Harris and his band back to Crich, with their new show, Light & Shade.
The performers are all of exceptional quality, and sometimes come from overseas. We’ve had acts from South Africa, the Middle East, the USA, Canada and southern Europe among others. They’ve often performed to massive audiences at major venues and festivals around the UK, and abroad, but they also enjoy the special intimacy of a rural venue. It’s a great chance to hear top quality music at affordable prices, and to chat to the musicians if you want to. Even better, you don’t have to travel too far!
