Derby Theatre


During these challenging and unprecedented times for us all, the Theatre continues to take advice and instruction from all relevant sources and authorities, and as such, we have had to take the unfortunate decision to extend the closure of our building for now and cancel ALL performances and events up to, and including, Saturday 27 June.
