ctd architects are sponsoring the first official outdoor stage at the Leek Blues & Americana Festival being held in town from Sept 27th to October 1st.
The outdoor stage at Sparrow Park, Derby Street will be setup on the final day of the festival, in conjunction with the Sunday Supplement artisan market held on the same day. Starting at 11am local singer songwriter Phil Maddocks & The Outdoor Angels will be opening proceedings followed by another local act Spinster Jones at midday before The Fugitives from Vancouver, Canada take to the stage at 1pm.
The first outdoor stage is a great addition to the established festival, now in its 5th year, complementing the busking spot at the opposite end of town that has been a staple of the festival from when it started and giving larger acts a chance to perform for the bustling crowds out to enjoy the Blues festival and the Sunday Supplement market as well.
Patrick Redmond, architect director at ctd said ‘For ctd architects these type of events are a key part of a town’s energy and rejuvenation, often run by volunteers with a passion for their town and we are more than happy to be able to support the development and long term aspirations of the festival.’
