Ilkeston - Local Music Live
w/e 20 March 2022

All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

After a much reduced programme and at times non-existent programme because of the pandemic, the Erewash Museum opened its doors again to the general public for its first major event in two years and invited everyone to enjoy "Local Music Live" on March 18th and 19th.

Local Music Live

Friday's event was aimed mainly at children with workshops all day long but did included a numbsr of organ like tubes arranged in a circle just beyond the entrance gates that could be struck with mallets to produce sound. This was called the "Bell Orchestra" (left above) but on Saturday the event had over spilled to the Shop Mobility building and car park and steel drums provided another opportunity for visitors to try their hand at making music.

This page from the programme is a good introduction to the event.

Everyone Eats

On Saturday, volunteers from the Everyone Eats charity were distributing free picnic lunches that were greatly appreciated by all.
Craft Fair

A Craft Fair had been set up on the car park and that too proved popular with visitors to the event.
Bennerley Viaduct Exhibition

Just inside the museum entrance, the Friends of Bennerley Viaduct had a stall with fund raising momentoes and there was also an exhibition showing the work that has gone into the restoration of the viaduct which has recently opened to the public as a walk and cycle way.
What's On 19 March

Performances were staged all day in a large marquee on the lawn at the museum and this page from the programme shows the running order. We were there for a number of the performances in the middle of the day but with apologies to those that we missed, below are a few images of several of the acts.
