CHRISTMAS celebrations are starting early for the music world in Belper.

This Friday, December 16, the Queen’s Head, on Chesterfield Road, is home to a Christmas Cracker, presented by the town’s Deafbox Promotions.

Shaun Bunting, of Deafbox, said: “This is a night not to be missed. It will be packed with local acts and lots of festive fun.”

Belper-based acoustic duet Jack and Fran will open the night, followed by solo artist Tom Makinson.

Kilburn youngsters Midday Firework are next on with a mix of popular rock songs, before Belper/Ashbourne four-piece The Alternative get the toes tapping using a range of different instruments.

The fifth act is Deafbox’s Battle of the Bands 2011 winner Okapi, who are a Ripley-based indie band.
