Derby Nottingham Metro Strategy events and travel offer

Derby and Nottingham are working together to acheive a new vision:

Two Great Cities: One Vision

By 2030 Derby & Nottingham will have a global reputation as an exciting place to live, work and play – you'll want to learn here, do business here, have fun here and make this great place your home.‌

One of the five big ambitions of the Metro strategy is:

METRO LIVING  - Providing a range of exciting and accessible opportunities for a modern urban lifestyle, befitting of a world-class urban area, where residents can live, earn and play through a wide range of sporting and cultural activities

As part of this, Derby and Nottingham are working together to cross-promote a programme of event highlights across both cities.
