A month-long celebration of music, art and culture got under way in the Moorlands last week as the first main event in the 2022 Leek Arts Festival attracted a capacity audience to the town’s Foxlowe Arts Centre. A crowd of more than 150 people flocked to the venue on Wednesday (May 4) for an evening of heart-pumping African beats from the Tri Nations Trio supported by the Leek U3A African drumming group.
