About the event

An evening of classical music and fireworks – don’t forget your picnic!

Derby's much-loved concert returns to Darley Park after a year’s break.

Tickets are now only available to purchase from Darley Park. There are two Box Offices- One at the Darley Abbey Village end (next to Darley Barn), the other at the Rowing Club end of the park.

Come along and be part of one of the UK’s biggest outdoor classical concerts, in the stunning natural amphitheatre that is Darley Park. This year's programme has links to Derby's 40th year as a City with performances of famous cricket theme Soul Limbo and Youth of Britain March. The City’s industrial heritage will also be celebrated with Funiculi Funicula, Runaway Train and Come Fly with Me, whilst Derby County Football Club is also acknowledged with a performance of Steve Bloomer’s Watching.

This year’s show also features popular pieces from past concerts that will send a shiver up your spine such as Thunderbirds, music from Star Wars and the fantastic Bohemian Rhapsody. The programme also features three selections made by a public vote: Goodwin: 633 Squadron (2006), Prokofiev: Montagues and Capulets from Romeo and Juliet (2015) and Steiner: Lara’s Theme - Gone with the Wind (2008).

Tim Lihoreau, presenter of Classic FM’s More Music Breakfast, will host the event and will also broadcast his breakfast show from Classic FM’s East Midlands studio the following morning.  Tim presents the biggest breakfast show on UK commercial radio, with 1.7 million people tuning in every week.

Sinfonia Viva have confirmed the concert Conductor will be James Holmes along with baritone, Grant Doyle as Soloist, both of whom are regulars at the concert.
