May issue of artsbeat is out now

May 15 front for promosThe May edition of artsbeat is now out and will be delivered across the county by the end of the week.

Featured this month are artists John Connolly and Ann Bates and photographer Nick Lukey, who has a gallery in Ashbourne.

There are also articles about Opera Babe Karen England who will be singing at Belper Arts Festival, a classical music concert at Haddon Hall, Mayfield Music, the Derby Book Festival, Derbyshire Literature Festival and Belper Art Group’s 40th Anniversary.

We have some suggestions as to how you can spend a culture packed day and evening at Buxton Festival and there’s a chance to win tickets to a literary talk about Hockney and a copy of his biography. We have also compiled a guide to the venues which will be opening up their doors so you can Meet The Artists over the two May bank holiday weekends.

And of course there are all the usual guides to what’s going on in the county.
