The Big Jubilee Lunch at the Market Place

05/06/2022, 12pm - 6pm Derby Market Place

Bring your own picnic. Picnic benches provided.

The Big Jubilee Lunch takes place across the nation on Sunday 5 June, with the Market Place the meeting point for communities across Derby. Come and share friendship, food and fun. It’s the party that’s right up your street, and if you don’t have a celebration in yours, come and join ours!

Join your host Andy Twigge, BBC Radio Derby’s breakfast show presenter, for an entertaining stage show from local acts, all projected on the big screen. Sinfonia Viva, the orchestra of the East Midlands, will play show tunes from the last 70 years.

Surtal Arts will be performing with two acts. Dhol Frequency are an ensemble of talented percussionists performing popular rhythms in their own contemporary style, in a unique fusion of jazz percussion and the mighty Indian Dhol. And one of the most versatile and accomplished artists in the UK right now, Sandeep Raval, will perform Taiko to Tabla. Let the beat of his global percussion set take you on a journey from Japan to India to Africa, in a celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Commonwealth.

Also on stage will the energetic Hoverla Ukranian Dance Ensemble. Members have been proudly keeping Ukrainian traditions alive through Ukrainian folk dancing and music in Derby since 1952, and have performed throughout Europe, appeared on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two and have entertained Prince Charles!

Now more than ever, Hoverla believe it’s important to upkeep Ukrainian culture and traditions, and are proud of Derby and would like to thank all the communities within Derby for their incredible support to Ukraine during these last few months.
