Marketing and promotions have been headed up by Bondholder Gravity Digital Ltd, who manage the social media channels, developing a new website and managing all the marketing activities working closely with creative companies, Future Proof Films, JJ Public Relations, Square One, Mercia Image and Derby Days Out

Derby Festé Artistic Director Stephen Munn from Déda said: "Festé is a true partnership of a vast number of organisations and businesses – bringing together a range of committed individuals who work really hard to make the annual event a reality.

"It is this combination of talent and effort that ensures that Festé is always pushing boundaries, bringing the unexpected and unusual to the city and creating unforgettable memories."

"The fact that so many Bondholders are at the heart of the continued success of Derby Festé is testament to the widespread passion for cultural activity in the city and we are also particularly grateful for the input from Artcore, Baby People, Arts Council England and the Without Walls Associate Touring Network."
