Derby Remembers

9 June - 23 July

Welcome to Derby Remembers, a season of cultural events and activities to commemorate the First World War, allowing people of all ages to explore their own and the city’s connection to the conflict.

Drawing on archive letters, literature and artefacts, the programme will open up hidden histories and personal accounts of how the war impacted on the lives of the men, women and children of Derby.

These will sit alongside contemporary responses to themes of conflict and remembrance using film,poetry, story, music and performance.

Derby Remembers is timed to coincide with Poppies: Weeping Window at the Silk Mill Museum, which provides a focal point for reflection within this diverse season.

The Derby Cultural Education Partnership has also created a bespoke schools programme in order to encourage a deeper understanding of the First World War and which supports learning outcomes in art, history and literature.

The Derby Remembers programme has been made possible through the commitment and support of a unique mix of partners that involves arts organisations, libraries, museums, university and schools from across the city.

Here's what's on around the city;
