We're sorry to report that earlier this week six of the Midland Railway's church windows were smashed in overnight by vandals. It's likely to cost the charity over £1000 to replace the windows, and we're therefore asking if you'd like to help raise some money towards the repairs.
The church stage has been the scene for some of our favourite Indietracks memories; The Specific Heats, Darren Hayman, The Lovely Eggs, The Middle Ones, Haiku Salut, Gordon Ballboy and various versions of Pete Green to name just a few! Apparently the railway rescued and rebuilt the church, which dates back to Victorian times, from Westhouses in Derbyshire several years ago and we're really sad to see someone cause so much damage to such a beautiful and integral part of both the railway and our festival.
The appeal will run until Saturday 14 January 2012, and every donation, no matter how small, will be very much appreciated. To donate towards the appeal, please visit:

We’re excited to announce that early bird tickets for the 2012 Indietracks festival are now on sale!
The festival will take place on 6-8 July 2012 at the Midland Railway Centre in Derbyshire. We’ve kept the early bird prices the same as last year’s prices, which means you can save £7 on every adult weekend ticket if you pick them up early.
Weekend tickets are now available at an early bird discount price of £60 (standard price £67). Single day (Saturday or Sunday) early bird tickets are available for £32.50 (standard price £35). The early bird prices are only available until 5pm on Saturday 14 April.
Tickets for children aged 5-14 are £6 for a day ticket and £10 for the weekend. Under-5s get in free!
Please pop over to the following Midland Railway link to pick up your tickets:
Or alternatively, please call the Midland Railway direct on 01773 747 674 between 10am and 4pm.
We’ll start announcing artists shortly. As always, we’ll have around 50 artists playing across four stages: the outdoor stage, indoor stage, the church and on the steam trains themselves. The festival will also host art and craft workshops for all the family and a selection of discos after the bands finish. And you can have unlimited rides on the steam railway over the weekend, as well as full access to all the other railway attractions and museums!
See you in July!
