Outdoor events to look forward to this summer

Fri 7 Apr 2017

This summer the popular outdoor theatre and cinema will return to Markeaton Park Craft Village. Hosted by Markeaton Park and Derby LIVE events will run from Wednesday 14 June – Saturday 5 August.

There will be a number of performances and screenings taking place throughout this period, including the return of the hilarious Oddsocks Productions bringing Shakespeare to life with Romeo and Juliet in June, as well as Macbeth in July. Following on from last year’s popular screenings the very special outdoor cinematic experience returns with classic films Grease and Mamma Mia. There will also be theatrical performances from local theatre companies Babbling Vagabonds and Big Adventures with their new community production.

The outdoor theatre and cinema season will provide visitors the opportunity for a day out in the picturesque park followed by some of the best entertainment Derby has to offer. Markeaton Park has a range of activities to enjoy including footgolf, Mundy Play Centre, park walks, the Adventure Hub and Craft Village with a variety of crafting shops to explore.

To complete the experience the Orangery Café are offering an exclusive array of fresh food packages to be enjoyed. With charming scenery, fun activities, interesting stores, stunning films and shows and delicious food, the outdoor theatre and cinema season is certain to be a great day out for all.
