Derby LIVE is the Council’s own award-winning team, highly-experienced in providing events, performances and festivals for the city, across a range of indoor and outdoor spaces.
Derby LIVE will develop and grow its team and operate a more commercial model, prioritising events that attract the largest audiences and to make best use of the maximised space. Investment in commercial expertise will ensure that the venue reaches its full potential and is put to its widest possible use.
The venue is expected to deliver hundreds of events each year that in turn are expected to attract 160,000 visitors to the city centre.
As part of the current consultation being run by Derby City Council on the emerging designs for the Assembly Rooms, the public will also be able to put forward suggestions to representatives of Derby LIVE who are keen to hear what types of shows, acts and events they’d like to see in the venue once the transformation is complete.
An opportunity for members of the public to have their say at a second public drop-in session will take place on 22 May between 9.00am – 5.00pm in the Guildhall Theatre clubroom.
