What Else Is Happening at Derby Feste?

On Saturday the streets will come to life from noon with entertainers for the whole family including live music, circus performances, dance, and super heroes – all FREE of charge.

The Saturday headline act for this year starts with a parade of colour winding through the Cathedral Quarter. Then dance the night away at the spectacular Garba celebration of light, colour and rhythm.

The ‘Colour of Time’ procession, by Cie Artonik, will begin at 5pm winding its way through the streets to Cathedral Green – where only the brave will enter the explosion of colour

Then don’t miss the incredible spectacle of more than 100 dancers perform the Garba under a canopy of lanterns on the Market Place. You can join in or just enjoy the wonderful Night Market!
