Hardwicke Circus - a local band based in Carlisle - have been taken on by a new manager whose previous clients include the Beatles.

The group used to be called The Alleys, but are now named after the city's famous roundabout.

They're heavily involved in the Source Collective, a music venue in Denton Holme, and are regular performers in Carlisle.

But they're building a bigger fan base, and are also playing plenty of gigs in London.

The group are now working with Dave Robinson, a music manager who played a part in the success of The Rolling Stones and Madness.
