CQ BID and Business News E-bulletin - Derby Feste special

Issue No 339   September 2016

 

 

Derby Feste Friday 23 & Saturday 24 September 2016

The 10th Derby Festé is just a few days away. Expect the unexpected, savour the strange and revel in the ridiculous as Derby Feste returns to the city.

 

The Cathedral Quarter BID are proud sponsors of Derby Feste. For further information on Derby Feste events and activities please click here or pick up your copy of the Festival programme at locations around the Cathedral Quarter.

With a host of free events and entertainment there is guaranteed to be something for everyone so come along and bring the whole family for two days of celebrations.

Derby Festé kicks off on Friday night with a parade through the city centre with giant fire-breathing Dragons stalking through the streets leading to a party on the Market Place and the famous Night Market organised by Sheena Holland with stalls selling street food, drink, crafts and vintage and a surprise Hoverla performance.

On Saturday the streets of the Cathedral Quarter come alive from noon onwards with entertainers for the whole family including live music, circus performances, dance, and acrobatics.

The headline act for this year is called  by the fantastic acrobatic Transe Express, which will see Bass' Recreation Ground transformed into an underwater wonderland. The atmospheric show will transport the crowds to a magic oceanic world. Colourful neon sea creatures elevated on a huge telescopic crane will cavort on the lit surface of the sea with the fish and other ocean dwellers weaving their way through the audience on the sea bed.

 

The performance of MÚ will be priced at just £7. All other events and performances at Derby Festé will be FREE.

To purchase tickets to the headline event please click here.

Views sought from Cathedral Quarter businesses regarding car parking

Earlier this year a letter was sent out to all Cathedral Quarter businesses explaining how a previous review of car parking in the city had been terminated due to unforeseen circumstances.

Subsequent to this Derby City Council have announced that they will be undertaking their own strategic review of car parking in the city centre. The Cathedral Quarter BID has since been working with the University of Derby to design and implement a survey for completion by Cathedral Quarter businesses, the findings from which will feed directly into Derby City Council's review.

The survey should take no longer than ten minutes to complete and the answers you provide will be used to help inform future policy development. Please click here to be redirected to the car parking survey.

If you would like to discuss the car parking survey further please contact Ashley Lewis, BID Project Manager, on 01332 419053.
