Rock band at arts gig

AN ILKESTON band is playing the first of a series of concerts organised by a Derbyshire arts group to show off young talent in the county.

Fleet Arts’ flagship music project Turn it Up is celebrating its 10th anniversar, and to celebrate, musicians both new and old are taking part in a programme of events through March and April.

The first, featuring The Standby Setting from Ilkeston, is at Derby Assembly Rooms on Saturday from 2pm to 10pm.

Co-ordinator Julian Butt said: “It is incredible that what started out as a three-year local project has run for so long.”
