Purple Flag

Earlier this year Derby was awarded the much coveted Purple Flag for its city centre evening and night-time economy.

Purple Flag is an independent national award run by the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM) in partnership with industry, licensees, retailers, police and consumers.

The scheme judge Derby on everything from crime and safety, to how visitors can travel home after an evening out.

Derby was highlighted by the judge as being a great night time destination for all ages and for having an excellent mix of exciting and diverse evening entertainment on offer. Particular praise was given to the many festivals which take place in the city such as Derby Festé, the Format International Photography Festival and the Derby CAMRA Winter Beer Festival.

The strong partnership working towards Purple Flag was also highly commended.
