THERE are still chances to soak up some culture as the art attack on Wirksworth continues.

A range of creative and inspiring events is taking place throughout the town as part of Wirksworth Festival.

Among the attractions, poet Bert Flitcroft will be discussing his recent collection ‘Singing Puccini at the kitchen sink’ in Catching Happiness – a poet’s view.

The event takes place in the Coach House, Crown Yard, between 7.30pm and 8.30pm this evening and tickets cost £3 on the door.

The largest participation musical ever to take place in Derbyshire will be held on Saturday night.

Around 120 singers and 60 musicians will raise the roof of Wirksworth Leisure Centre as they perform Carmina Burana, conducted by Richard Roddis.

Information on all events taking place during the festival is available by visiting www.wirksworthfestival.co.uk, or popping into the festival office, in North End.
