March edition of artsbeat out this week

March 15 front for promosThe March edition of artsbeat magazine will be out week and as always will include a diverse range of features about the arts in Derbyshire.

You can read about established artist’s Mark Langley, Nick Hersey and emerging artists Jack Halford and Betty Thorley as well as the Buxton Festival of World Cinema and  the FORMAT International Photography Festival being staged in Derby.

You can have a look around the studio of wildlife sculptor Eddie Hallam and meet the owner of Made @ No 18 in Alfreton. There are details about Blood Wedding at Derby Theatre, the Festivals lined up for 2015 across the county and the storytelling of Cat Weatherill who is on the front page.

Of course there are all the usual detailed listings, plus a new gig guide. If there are any bands out there who would like to feature in future gig guides then send your details to

Details of which towns and villages have copies of the magazine to pick up are in the drop down above. If you want to know precise locations email and I will let you know where I have dropped them off. I go to 350 or so different outlets from Hadfield in the north to Staunton Harold in the south so there should be one near you. Please be patient though as I deliver them all myself so some of you won’t have them until the weekend.
