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.
With Sinfonia Viva
The theme of this year's concert is time. Programme here:
Tickets - £0 - Free Entry!
The concert starts at 6pm but we will meet up at 5pm at The Broadway Pub beforehand, so that we can all walk down on to the Park together. The Broadway is on Duffield Road, Derby, DE22 1JB
As you may have seen from the comments below, Katy will be parking in town and walking up to Darley Abbey. If anyone can't get to The Broadway, she has kindly agreed to meet up with you in town, so that you can walk up together. The meeting time for this will be 4pm. I will e-mail full details in the final arrangements. We will then convene at The Broadway for 5pm, so that we can go to the Park as one group. Otherwise, trying to find people in a crowd of 30,000 will be like looking for a needle in a haystack!
I will e-mail out a contact 'phone number but 'phone reception in the park is patchy, so I would advise you to come to the Broadway at 5pm, otherwise I can't guarantee that we will be able to find you in the Park.
The concert starts at 6pm with entertainment from "The Big Sing" and then the concert starts proper at 7pm. Bring something to eat and drink and we'll have a "picnic" whilst the warm up act is on. There are too many people signed up, to try and co-ordinate everyone bringing different foods, so just bring along what you want to eat and drink.
I would suggest that you bring something suitable to sit on and of course appropriate clothing for the weather. Anyone that can bring a folding table, that might be useful, although please bear in mind we are meeting in a pub, if you do bring along all your camping equipment :-)
Hopefully it will be a warm sunny evening!
