This year’s Indietracks Festival runs from July 25-27.

Every year the organisers of the festival run a selection of arts and crafts workshops at Indietracks. In previous years, they have had cupcake decorating, fanzine making, rock and roll sock puppets and even indie-pop Lindy hop dancing.

Indietracks organisers will announce lots more bands shortly, and will also have DJs, art and craft workshops, fine foods, real ales and all the steam railway attractions available for festivalgoers.

n If you’ve never seen Elvis Presley live in concert, head to the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham on May 8 for the closest you’ll ever get.

What was it like to experience an Elvis concert in Las Vegas?

Those who were there say it was the pinnacle of entertainment – a ticket that was hard to be had – the biggest and best show in Sin City.

Now, in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of rock and roll and Elvis’s first recording session that led to the birth of rock ‘n’ roll, Graceland, Elvis Presley Enterprises and 3A Entertainment are proud to present Elvis Presley - On Stage.

Using the latest technology, the late, great star performs via state-of-the art video screens singing lead vocals backed by a live band, singers and an orchestra.

Together, this multi-media creation puts the audience inside an Elvis Presley concert presented exactly like one of his classic live performances in a Las Vegas showroom.

For ticket availability you are asked to call the ticket hotline on 0844 338 0000 or you can call the box office at the venue on 0115 9895555.
