Derby's newest landmark, the £30.8 million sporting venue, Derby Arena.

Eagerly anticipated by the people of Derby as well as cycling enthusiasts in the region, Derby Arena has now been given an official opening date for Friday 20th March 2015.

There will also be a special launch event the evening before which welcomes hundreds of local people as well as "sporting and cultural celebrities who will be able to explore the iconic new venue for the first time".

Following the launch event there will be 30 days of events to slowly "unwrap" the amazing new £30.8 million venue to the public.

We’re offering a brilliant opportunity to see the Arena in all its glory, try first-hand what it has to offer and most importantly, give the Arena’s visitors and Derby people the opportunity to help us shape the running and operating of this fabulous venue.
