Back in Derbyshire for a busy weekend, with the band moving slowly down the Derwent Valley day by day.
The first engagement of the weekend is Friday night at The George And Dragon in Belper, very much considered a home venue and as usual here, with no support plenty of time to hear the full remit of material. The pub is towards the Matlock end of Bridge Street(A6) and served by nearby rai station, Transpeak and Trent 6s buses.
Outdoors again on Saturday, this time at one of Derbyshire's best kept secrets, Beefstock, which has been raising substantial amounts for charity and gaining in stature since 2007.
Hosted by Field Farm, accessed directly opposite the entrance to Allestree Park.
Due to the fact that the venue is a field by the river, it is suggested that vehicles are left in the Park or nearby streets. Alternatively, again Transpeak and Sixes buses accomodate.
Camping is available for a £5 charity donation and real ale will be available throughout the day, however no volume food outlets so your own picnics are positively encouraged.
Gates are open from midday and the music begins at 2pm and is scheduled to end at 10. BB Blackdog, making their event debut are destined to take to the stage at 7.55.The rest of the programe contains 11th Hour, Dose The River View,LAF, Leere and the ever present Omen Searcher and W05.
To round off the weekend, another home venue, upstairs at the Derby Brewery Tap, with the usual chilled four o clock start time. Always a good selection of both their own and guest ales, with a good reputation for food to boot. Situated just over the bridge on Derwent Street, a perfect end to the weekend
