Summer Nights is a festival of outdoor film screenings in beautiful heritage locations throughout the summer.
This year we are working with thirteen spectacular venues across the UK, all with their own unique charms. Summer Nights is organised by QUAD, Derby's Centre for Art and Film.
Here's what's on in and around Derby;
