2016 will be our tenth festival, and we’d love it if you could join us whether it will be your first visit, or you’ve been with us from the start.

For those who haven’t been before…
The festival is co-produced by Derby LIVE and PR Promotions and use to take place throughout every bit of space that the Assembly Rooms had to offer. With that venue out of action, we had to move outside, putting the main concerts into The City Marquee on the Market Place. Other concerts will be happening in Derby LIVE’s Guildhall Theatre, The Old Bell Hotel on Sadler Gate and as with 2015, Derby Cathedral. Added into that will be Folk Club events, a full fringe music programme with free concerts for everyone including non-ticket holders), sessions, dance displays, workshops, craft stalls and a great atmosphere throughout the weekend.

All of the venues are within Derby’s Cathedral Quarter, right in the heart of the city. Dance displays will take place within the Cathedral Quarter and also the neighbouring St Peters Quarter.
