For over 35 years we've been presenting the very best in arts and entertainment with popular musicals, comedy, opera, ballet and drama as well as Derby's biggest Christmas show.

We incorporate a year-round programme of arts and entertainment at the Guildhall Theatre, a programme of exciting events at Derby Arena including Derby's traditional all-star pantomime,  as well as a range of high quality, outdoor events across the city such as The Darley Park Concert, the Christmas Lights Switch-On, and the St George's Day celebrations. We alos work in partnership with other event producers on a huge range of events across the city on parks, open spaces and in the city centre.

Derby LIVE is funded by Derby City Council. Our revenue funding accounts for less than half of our annual income and we work hard to reduce our reliance on subsidy. We do this through ticket sales, space hire, advertising, individual giving and sponsorship.
