About DCEP & The Role

Derby Theatre is currently DCEP’s lead partner and we work closely together with our cultural partners, including QUAD, DédaDerby & Derbyshire Music Partnership, Derby Museums, Sinfonia ViVA, Baby People, Artcore, Hubbub, EMBAA and EMCCAN to provide high-quality cultural experiences across the curriculum and beyond.
