Take off for a new adventure

Buckle up and prepare to go on a theatrical adventure with Derby Theatre this summer.

For one week in July, DEparture Lounge will showcase some of the most exciting fringe theatre companies from across the UK before they depart for the heady lights of Edinburgh and beyond.

The main stage will be transformed into a wonderful summer festival where you can relax on the ‘grass’ and watch some extraordinary theatre – so, don’t forget your picnic blanket!

From one-on-one experiences with video goggles, to raucous folk nights with live music and ale, there’s something to whet everyone’s appetite at Derby Theatre, between July 11-19.

Sarah Brigham, artistic director at Derby Theatre, said: “DEparture Lounge is an exciting proposition for both us and our audiences at Derby Theatre.

“It’s going to allow our audiences to see us in a completely new light as we invite them to take their seat not in the auditorium but on the Derby Theatre main stage, which will be transformed into a summer outdoor festival atmosphere. We will be presenting some of the most exciting young companies from across the UK.”
