With summer only just around the corner (although you wouldn't think it today with the constant drizzle of rain!) we thought we'd let you know about some exciting new events taking place at various outdoor locations around Derby! 

Ey Up Mi Duck Race 2015

Sight Support Derbyshire are hosting the annual duck race, where thousands of rubber ducks will be released from St Marys Bridge, where the first to cross the line will be crowned the winner! Not only that but you can also dress up or decorate a large duck and enter it into the Best Dressed Duck competition! 

Derby Food Festival

Local exhibitors will provide a representation of the great food and drink Derby has to offer. There will be a street food vibe and a browse and wander feel to the event. Enjoy this first festival food right in the heart of Derby!
