On the 23rd and 24th September 2011, the annual Derby Festé returns to the streets of Derby. This two-day festival brings world-class performance, film, live music and more for a weekend of fun for all the family to enjoy.
A variety of entertainment includes giant fire-breathing dragons, aerial acrobatics performing death-defying stunts, pyrotechnics, live bands, street parties and much more.
One of the most popular acts is back in 2011, the Spanish-based Sarruga, who transforms the city street into an underwater world with the performance of Peixos.
Giant illuminated fish and creatures of the deep transform the street into 30metres of spectacular seabed. Vivid colours and special effects as well as music, sound and light immerse the crowd into the ocean, with sharks and jellyfish moving overhead.
The festival will end with the finale in the recently transformed Cathedral Green, the city’s natural amphitheatre.
Derby Festé brings a carnival atmosphere to the Midland city for two days and nights and has a reputation of bringing a host of internationally acclaimed and local talents to liven up the streets for this festival celebration.
