CQ Saturdays Street Circus Whets The Appetite for Derby Festé

Visitors to Derby Cathedral Quarter on Saturday September 9 will have a taste of the outdoor entertainment in store for them at the end of the month over the two-day annual Derby Festé on Friday September 29 and Saturday September 30.

CQ Saturdays Street Circus will return to the Waterfall stage in the Market Place on September 9 between 11am and 3pm.

The free event will be compered by Chango Fuego whose eclectic mix of mayhem and great skill see the character of Juan Carlos entertain and thrill the audience.

He will be joined by The Tom Show which is a fast-paced show packed with juggling, contortion, unicycling and comedy; as well as Jonathan Bendtsen – a multi-skilled circus artist whose skills as an acrobat are outstanding and who builds up a special rapport with the crowd.

The Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) has again teamed up with outdoor performance specialists Déda Producing for the entertainment which has been held on the second Saturday of every month in the run up to Derby Festé in September.

Visit www.derbyfeste.com for the full Festé programme which centres on the Cathedral Quarter on Saturday September 30 with free street entertainment followed by the Colour of Time procession late afternoon and finishing the evening Indian Garba dance spectacular in the Market Place.

The Friday action will be based at the nearby Bass’ Recreation Ground which will be transformed into the Festé World of Circus for an evening of spectacular entertainment
