Derby Rises - Livestream

A Celebration Event produced by Derby CAN
One Night Events , Community Events
Sunday 27 September 2020

To celebrate the city's emergence from quarantine, and easing out of lockdown, we invite you to join us on Facebook Live for Derby Rises on Sunday 27 September at 7pm.

Derby Rises is part of Derby CAN (Creative Arts Network), a three-year, multi-partner Arts Council England funded project to work, co-curate and co-create with different communities. 

You are invited to watch a special evening of performances, for free online, as Derby Rises heads out of lockdown and gazes hopefully into our shared future. Over the last month, we have been connecting with communities across our city, baking together, fermenting ideas and listening to your hopes and dreams. 

Now we have created an evening of entertainment which brings these dreams and ideas to life!  

The socially distanced evening of celebration will be held at the Theatre with an invited audience and broadcast directly to your home.

The Facebook Live will be BSL Interpreted.
