Be Here Now is an irreverently comic yet tender look at how music seeps into and influences our lives. Pumping nineties beats, suspect dance routines and angsty shoegazing combine to celebrate the irresistible power of pop and examine how that song will forever ignite heady feelings of love lost and won.

HORRIBLE FACT OF THE DAY! People who developed plague sores from the Black Death that swept the country in the mid 14th century were advised to shave a live chicken’s bottom & strap it onto where ever the pain was – it doesn’t seem to have worked as over a million people in England died during this plague. Discover more horrible facts with Horrible Histories Barmy Britain, coming to Derby Theatre from 7-11 October!

Get ready for a captivating night at the circus packed with thrills, extraordinary feats, laughs and fantastic live music. Our stunning troupe of acrobats, aerialists, daredevil stuntmen and musicians are going to put on a jaw-dropping spectacle for you. But there's a problem; no one is prepared and mishaps, disasters and disagreements threaten to wreck the show. A flying aerialist is still ironing her dress, a cranky diva gets tangled in the rigging, and is that one of the stuntmen dangling from the lighting bar? Join us for choreographed chaos in Flown, launching Derby Feste 2014!

It's four in the morning and Leah Bird is alone in a flat in Derby waiting for her boyfriend to call. Over the course of a single night she tells us what it's like to be fourteen, fearless and full of love. But everything isn't what it seems, and as the sun comes up Leah begins to unpick the true nature of her relationship. Written by one of the country's most exciting young writers, Laura Lomas, Bird is a play about being young and vulnerable - but resilient.
