Search for bands to play at show

Have your say

THE SEARCH is on for gifted bands and musicians from Hucknall who have the ability to grace the stage at this year’s Ashfield Show.

In the past, the annual extravaganza has been headlined by chart-toppers, such as Sugababes.

But this year, organiser Ashfield District Council is throwing open the chance to perform to local talent.

Those groups or soloists who hit the right note will be invited to perform in front of thousands on the stage at Sutton Lawn, Sutton-in-Ashfield on Saturday August 13

If you are a member of, or know, a local band who might have what it takes, then Ashfield Council wants to hear from you.

To register an interest, e-mail John Tattersfield via or Dave Waring on Alternatively, call 01623 450000.

The one-day show will run from 10 am to 9.30 pm with the music stage providing a central feature, complete with a finale concert.

Once again, admission to the event, which is suitable for all ages, is free. Other attractions will include a funfair, trade stands, classic car display, charity stalls and games.
