A note about events from Matlock Music

In a normal year Matlock Music would be publicising the concert programme for the coming season and recruiting members. This year has been different for all of us. We hope that you have kept healthy and are looking forward to normal life returning over the coming months.

Until recently live concerts have been impossible but this has changed. They are allowed under strict conditions. We have heard from Highfields School that they hope to welcome back hirers in the not too distant future.

Derby Well Re-dressed Commissioned Artists Unveiled

Five local artists have been selected to create bespoke work that will take centre stage in a unique street arts trail around Derby city centre from Friday September 25 to Sunday September 27.

Derby Well Re-Dressed has been inspired by Derbyshire’s unique and ancient Well Dressing festivals which originated as indicators of clean water during the Plague in the 17th century.

The street arts trail will take place over the weekend that should have been the annual Derby Festé which has been cancelled due to Government guidance around mass gatherings.
