This Is Derby Celebration Event

“There’s nothing to do in Derby” – a one-day celebration event like no other.

Join us on Saturday 13 July 3-8pm at Derby’s Market Place to celebrate the talents and achievements of our young people in a vibrant takeover in Derby’s city centre.

A fusion of arts, culture and sports activities and performances will bring the Market Place to life for everyone to enjoy and inspire our city – that actually does have a lot to offer! The day will conclude with a spectacular finale.

We are asking every school & youth group across the city that have engaged with This is Derby to help us in supporting the young people we have been working with to take part in the celebration.

Join us!
