Two young Belper music acts will take centre stage at a music festival being held at Shipley Park this weekend.

Solo singer-songwriter, Laurie (pictured) and acoustic duo Amy & Lily will appear alongside Liverpool-based headliner KOF at this year’s Emerge festival.

The acts were given the opportunity to shine by Belper-based Fleet Arts after volunteers worked with school’s across the borough to nurture young talent.

Seventeen young musicians from Mill Hill School in Ripley, Belper School and Tupton Hall School are performing at the park on Sunday, June 23.
