Derby Theatre

Bold and brilliant performances. Shows that represent our community. A platform for groundbreaking artists. A pathway for learners of all ages. A guaranteed great night out. We’re a theatre like no other.

We’re known for artistic excellence. We’re committed to education. And we believe that theatre can change your life. 

Previously Derby Playhouse, we have a long and important theatrical history. As Derby Theatre, we work in partnership with the University of Derby. We produce new plays and projects, collaborate with artists and local people, and welcome higher education students and anyone who wants to learn.  

We are a charity and a National Portfolio organisation for Arts Council England, and we’re led by artistic director and CEO Sarah Brigham. 

It’s really important to us that we make everyone feel welcome. So we set out to treat everybody with respect and care. That includes audiences, artists and learners who are new to theatre or who don’t usually feel like it’s for them.  

Don’t just take our word for it – come and find out for yourself.

We think that the growth of businesses in Derby will help shape the city as a destination.

A spokesperson said: “We became a Marketing Derby Bondholder for networking, reaching out to, and engaging with, other businesses.”
