Community magazine editor Ian Tyas is to “busk with Bach” to raise money to keep Saltburn’s monthly magazine Talk of the Town going.

The five-hour marathon featuring Bach’s famous “48” selection will be held in Saltburn community theatre on Saturday November 5 from 13:00 to 18:00.

“I’ll be busking – `begging’ if you like (there’s no dignity in being editor of Talk of the Town) – for funds to save the magazine,” he has told the 4,500 readers.

Ian, 56, has owned and run the publication for nine years,

“it’s been a constant struggle to make ends meet.”

Local fans led by community activist Mike Sellars are forming a “friends” group to help the magazine to survive.
