Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No.. it’s BLAST OFF!! And it’s BACK!

Taking place on Sat 15 Apr between 11am and 3pm on Derby Market Place in the Cathedral Quarter, Blast Off features music, dance and variety performances, sneak previews of upcoming Derby Comedy Festival shows, interactive entertainment and superhero photo opportunities throughout the day.
