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 MÚ 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.
