Derby Rises is part of Derby CAN (Creative Arts Network), a three-year, multi-partner Arts Council England funded project to work, co-curate and co-create with different communities. 

You are invited to a special evening of performances as Derby Rises heads out of lockdown and gazes hopefully into our shared future. Over the last month, we have been connecting with communities across our city, baking together, fermenting ideas and listening to your hopes and dreams. 

Now we have created an evening of entertainment which brings these dreams and ideas to life.  It’s a chance to come together with your community (in a safe and socially distanced way), enjoy some LIVE performance, break bread and enjoy a glass of something special… join us for a great night out! 

Extremely Limited Tickets Available

A limited number of tickets are now available to attend the event at the Theatre. These are extremely limited and so if sold out please access online. If you have a ticket secured, seats will be allocated nearer to the time. Tickets will be ready for safe collection on the evening.

This event will also be livestreamed for audiences to watch at home via Facebook Live.
