An evening of classical music and fireworks in the stunning setting of Darley Park
Come along and be part of the 30,000 strong crowd at the UK’s biggest free outdoor classical concert, in the stunning natural amphitheatre that is Darley Park. An evening of classic music and fireworks – don’t forget your picnic!
Its a FREE event!
With Sinfonia Viva. This years concert theme is time. Full programme here:
Parking: concert car parks will charge - so you may want to find urrounding roads.
We will meet up at 5.15pm at the Abbey pub (on Darley Street in Darley Abbey on the edge of the park), and then walk straight into the park together so we can find a space.
The concert starts at 6pm with entertainment from "The Big Sing" and then the concert starts proper at 7pm.
The event is also on the Derby Sociables site - we will try and sit near the Derby group IF we can, for those who know people in both!
For those who arrive later - I plan to bring a giant (green) bamboo cane from my garden, as a marker for our group, which should be unique!!! So look out for this. Otherwise we will try and put up where we are on the site once sat down in the park if possible and will send out a mobile no to those signed up the day before (though coverage can be mixed).
What to bring?
Bring a picnic with you (either for yourself or to share with others!) something to sit on on the grass, a jumper perhaps for later on and waterproofs in case (but of course it will be dry and sunny:), a torch for when it gets dark.
Oh - and bring your 'ooohs' and 'aaahs' for the fireworks! :)
