But first there is tonight and Hayley Westenra sings. The biggest selling classical artist of the 21st Century (so far) is performing at Gawsworth Open Air Theatre with the Raven Quartet. The forecast is fine and right now the sun is shining making it all the more tempting, but to be wise, check ticket availability before venturing forth.
The main event though must be Windystock, a fest of fine local music - The Virginmarys, Rough Twist, The Merchants of Cool and Skipping Madrid to name just a few. The setting could not be more stunning and profits go to the Windyway Trust. £10 per ticket with a family ticket at £30 for up to 3 children; and it's just £2 if you want to go for the whole festival experience and pitch your tent. We will see you there, with a picnic and a blanket but we're not planning on being under canvas this weekend.
