What's happening?

Derby Market Place Alfresco Dining and Shows.

We bring you the Derby Market Place Alfresco Dining and Shows experience. The Derby Market Place has been transformed into a live entertainment space, with a wide range of events and festivals coming to the Derby Loves You temporary venue.

Derby Folk Festival at Derby Market Place.

1-3 October 2021

Derby Folk Festival is delighted to return to the live stage in 2021 in the heart of the city centre.

Last year’s event was hosted at home as live concerts could not go ahead due to the pandemic. Instead, online performances especially recorded for the festival by Derby LIVE’s technical team, drew audiences from around the world, along with an extensive Festival Fringe on Facebook.

Now many of the artists who had planned to be in Derby last year are preparing to return in the autumn, optimistic that live shows can once more draw Folk enthusiasts back into the city. 

Now in its 15th year this will be the chance to get together again and it's going to be extra special this time.
