Time for Derby to shine

The timing of Derby Festé at the end of September couldn’t be more perfect for the city – showcasing the city in the best light to thousands of visitors from near and far.


It’s the opportunity to reaffirm Derby’s reputation as a true festival city with a vibrant arts and cultural heritage.


Visitors can enjoy Derby’s safe and inclusive atmosphere in the run up to the Christmas season and why the city has won coveted Purple Flag status for several successive years.
