Historic Derbyshire pavilion to open again

An historic building in Derbyshire is preparing to open for the first time since it was taken over by the local community.

The Grand Pavilion in Matlock Bath was a music and entertainment venue, but closed several years ago.

It will cost millions of pounds to restore completely but community organisers said it would open temporarily for an arts festival.

BBC East Midlands Today's Carolyn Moses reports.
