Amateur translates as ‘for the love of it’. We believe that the amateur sector is vital to the theatre ecology of Derby.
Derby is fortunate to have one of the country's largest and most vibrant amateur theatre communities. We're lucky to see many of them in our performance spaces each year with their latest productions.
