Purple Flag

Derby are delighted to retain Purple Flag status for another year.

Earlier this year, a team of Purple Flag assessors visited the city, accompanied by Council officers and our partners, to judge its night-time offering under a variety of categories around safety and welcome. The assessors act as our critical friends providing totally independent assessments to the quality and professionalism of the services we work together to provide.

If you’ve ever been on a night out in Derby, you may have noticed the teams of volunteers and workers who give up their weekends to help keep you safe. Street Pastors, taxi marshals, Licensing Officers, Derbyshire police, door staff, ambulance crews and CCTV operators all work together in partnership to make Derby a Purple Flag city.

Our international Purple Flag accreditation provides the banner to which these partners rally to make Derby as safe, welcoming and diverse city as possible. It is a recognition of the hard work that goes on both on the street and behind closed doors to make your night out safer.
