News round up – 18 Dec 2017

Posted by Bob Rushton, December 18, 2017

It’s time to tell you some more news!

The first news is that we don’t think we can fit all of the artists into the three days, so we’re adding another! We’re delighted to say that as well as the full weekend, we are adding a great evening concert on Thursday 4th October. This will be in the City Marquee on the Market Place, and will be an “add-on” event. From Wednesday 20 Dec (when we’ll tell you more!) , tickets will be available at £16 for the evening concert – although, if you have bought (or are going to buy) a Weekend Ticket, you’ll be able to add this extra night for just £10. This price will stay in place right through to the festival, so you can add it on at any time. We do hope you’ll be able to join us, for a bigger-than-ever festival.

Our headline act for Saturday 6th October is… Eliza Carthy and The Wayward Band – an amazing live act who we are delighted to be bringing to Derby. It’s a few years since Eliza Carthy was with us, and we know you’ll give the band a fantastic welcome back!

Regular visitors to the festival will know that one act has returned year after year… they’re great friends to have, and wonderful performers who never fail to delight audiences. They are, of course, Winter Wilson – and they’re back for 2018! They’ll be popping up throughout the festival, making us laugh, think, and no doubt playing some songs from their new CD – Far Off On The Horizon!
