ROCK legends are queuing up to come to Holmfirth.
The town's Picturedrome cinema is proving to be a magnet for top bands.
Between now and next March, no fewer than seven members of rock's Hall of Fame will grace the Picturedrome's stage.
First through the door will be Nazareth, on Saturday, followed by Stiff Little Fingers on Monday.
On October 30, The Waterboys will perform, then on November 12 Walter Trout and the Radicals will play.
On November 19, former Stranglers member Hugh Cornwell will appear and on December 18 Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel will perform.
Finally, on March 19 next year, former Kinks singer Ray Davies will be at the Picturedrome.
Dates with Glen Tilbrook and Ricky Lee Davis are also on the cards for next year.
Picturedrome owner Peter Carr said the atmosphere of the small venue was what attracted the stars.
He added: "We have been getting these kinds of artists for years. Those that have been before always want to come back.
"They think it's brilliant because it is small and there is lots of chat with the audience."

Stiff Little Fingers:
The group formed as a covers band called Highway Star in 1977 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. They were singer Jake Burns, guitarist Henry Cluney, bass player Gordon Blair and drummer Brian Faloon.
They re-named themselves Stiff Little Fingers after the lyrics in a song by punk band The Vibrators.
Gordon Blair was soon replaced by Ali McMordie.
The band wrote political punk songs about life in Belfast, such as hits Suspect Device and Alternative Ulster.
In 1982, their sound became more pop-orientated and displeased fans.
The group split in 1983 but reformed in 1987.
Like most bands of their era, Stiff Little Fingers have undergone a number of line-up changes.
The original members of Nazareth were singer Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton, bass player Pete Agnew and drummer Darrell Sweet.
The band formed in the 1960s as the Shadettes in Dunfermline, Scotland.
In 1971, they became full-time, wild-haired rockers Nazareth.
Their own hits include Razmanaz and Broken Down Angel, but Nazareth were well known for unusual reworkings of other artists' songs, such as Tim Rose's Morning Dew and the Everly Brothers Love Hurts.
Forty years has seen many changes, including the death of Darrell Sweet in 1999.
Pete Agnew's son, Lee, replaced Sweet on drums.
Nazareth have been cited as the inspiration for Guns'n'Roses and AC/DC.
