We’ve been doing a little bit of programme tweaking to help with some artist logistics, which means a slight change on Saturday. Don’t panic, as rather than taking anything away, the line-up has been added to!
The wonderful Marc Block (Marc Block Music) will now be appearing in The Old Bell Hotel Derby at 5.40pm. There’s a fantastic line up in there all weekend, curated and hosted by our friends Furthest from the Sea Music, Comedy & Arts – look out for the full details on the website, and in forthcoming posts!
This means that there’s a slot in Derby Cathedral before Ange Hardy and we’re really pleased that it will be filled by Kirsty Merryn. She is on tour this autumn with Show of Hands, as part of their Cathedral Tour – so it’s a great fit all round!
With the paper versions of the flyers out and about, for those of you wanting an electronic copy, here’s a link to download a PDF version. The front and back pages are A5, with the centre being a landscape A4 sheet. We’re sure you’ll work it out once you’ve printed and folded it!
