Only 4 Days to go to brownie heaven with Scrumptious by Lucy at Belper

Only 4 days left before Belper Food Festival where you can buy our incredible brownies, I will be bringing a selection of brownies and blondies to this lovely food festival which is held in the centre of the Derbyshire market town of Belper

There is plenty of parking in the area and Belper is very easy to reach as it is on the main A6 between Derby and Matlock

Take a walk around the market and tempt your taste buds with the sight and wonderful aromas of the food.


From real ale, to home cured meat, farm cheeses to artisan breads you will find a wide selection of quality ingredients.


This event is held on three shopping streets in a market town bursting with history and heritage and lots of great local independent businesses that will also be open.


I shall be bringing my latest pop up brownies flavour for September, the really popular Malteser brownie, as well as Signature chocolate, Terry's chocolate orange, Nutella, Oreo, and the really popular blondie flavours of Lemon drizzle and bakewell blondie.




Don't forget, if you can't make it to Belper, you can still go online and order your favourite brownies from The Sheffield brownies bakery Scrumptious by Lucy and have your brownies delivered in our beautiful letterbox brownies gift box sent to anywhere in the UK.


We also supply our brownies and blondies to corporate events as well as supplying caterers for weddings and every other event.


If you have a few hours, there is so much to see in Belper, did you know that Belper is the

Birthplace of the world's ground-breaking 'skyscraper technology, Belper has a rich industrial history and lies at the heart of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.


Industrial pioneer Jedediah Strutt built one of the world's first water-powered cotton spinning mills here in 1776 - and Strutt's North Mill, now the Derwent Valley Visitor Centre - was rebuilt in 1803 using the world's first fire proof iron frame, the template for modern high-rise engineering.


Explore the story of Samuel 'Slater the Traitor', who learned his trade with the Strutts then became an illegal immigrant to the USA to found the American Industrial Revolution at Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Massachusetts - a link that lives on through town twinning.


Take a town walk to appreciate sights such as Long Row and The Clusters, the Nail Makers Workshop and St John's Chapel, the oldest building in the town and home to Belper Heritage Centre. Pause for a breath of fresh air, colourful floral displays, band concerts and special events at Belper River Gardens and feel the power of the 18th century Horseshoe Weir.


Then discover why Belper was acclaimed Winner of Winners at the 2014 Great British High Street Awards and then Champion Award winner of the Great British High Street Awards in 2019.


There is plenty of retail therapy at specialist shops and a popular monthly Farmers' Market in the historic Market Place. Close by, The Butts is worth a look for its choice of period antiques, interior furnishings and giftware.





When you feel the need for refreshment, there's a host of cafés, pubs and restaurants where you can find a friendly welcome, locally-produced food, real ales and live music. Or treat yourself to an art house film or blockbuster movie at the award-winning, independent Ritz Cinema. Sit back and enjoy the on-screen action in the plush surroundings of a lovingly-restored Art Deco picture palace.


So, if you have the time to come along, please drop by and say "Hi"
