Plus lots more
There will also be a ceilidh, art & craft workshops and writing workshops. There will also be readings from local writers such as former Derbyshire Poet Laureate River Wolton, Kathy Towers (winner of the 2011 Seamus Heaney Poetry prize), and Mark Wallington who will be reading from his new book about his ukelele tour of Britain's 'open mic' events.
Coolio. The Old Dance School are stunning and we'd strongly recommend people catch Gilmore & Roberts and The Bella Hardy trio. Chris Sherburn on Concertina is amazing! (As is Bella, of course)
Jules, do you know, yet when the above are playing? Hopefully (for us) not Friday because we're playing at a smaller, more local festival (spam for this to follow soon...) that night.
