Cue the music, cue the artists, cue the sunshine and cue the crowds of people! Put away your umbrella and prepare for a late splash of colour and energy this summer – September is Melbourne Festival so put the date in your diary and don’t miss out!
Each September Melbourne comes alive as a hub for the creative and performing arts. Now into its eighth year the Festival is eagerly awaited by local people and visitors from far afield, Melbourne Festival is the highlight of South Derbyshire’s cultural calendar . For two weeks people pour in to take advantage of the programme taking place in this gem of a town hidden away between Derby, Nottingham and Leicester.
The 2012 Melbourne Festival Art and Architecture Trail will be open 10-6 on Saturday 15th and 10-5 on Sunday 16th September. The Melbourne Festival Art and Architecture Trail brings a blur of colour, music and excitement, throughout the weekend the streets packed with people. This year over 70 venues will be hosting nearly 120 artists in the heart of Melbourne featuring a variety of mediums and styles of work all of which will be for sale.
