Derby LIVE has revealed details of the forthcoming Darley Park Weekender – three days of family-friendly music in beautiful park surroundings.

Jason Donovan, Chesney Hawkes and DJ Scott Mills will appear at the 80s Mix Tape on Friday 30 August, with support from The 80s Reunion and Cassette Roulette.

Honeyz, DJ Chris Moyles and special guests Blue will take to the stage, alongside The Ultimate Boy Band Party Show and Cassette Roulette, on Saturday 31 August.

The Darley Park Concert will round off the weekend on Sunday 1 September with classical music from Sinfonia Viva and a dazzling display of fireworks.

The Darley Park Weekender is organised by Derby LIVE, Derby City Council’s events arm.

It will be sponsored by Circulayo, Fortitude MSP, HUUB, Sami Tipi, Tomato Energy and the University of Derby.

Circulayo provides a complete technology solution for businesses looking to eliminate single-use plastic waste and integrate sustainability into everyday life.

HUUB is a Derby-based sportswear company for the swim, bike and run communities, while the family-friendly Weekender fits perfectly with locally-based Sami Tipi’s values of creating memorable experiences in beautiful settings.

The University of Derby continues to play its part in the prosperity and wellbeing of the city by supporting the event.

This year’s event will also see further improvements to make it a better experience.

Changes will be made to allow more people on Friday and Saturday nights, and more seating on the Sunday.

The dance floor area in front of the stage, which proved popular with the crowds last year, will be back on Friday and Saturday.

The layout of the site has also been tweaked to improve the flow of people and exit gates have been expanded. There will also be a taxi/drop-off point at Parkers Piece.

Further details of what you can expect when attending The Darley Park Weekender, including what can and can’t be brought into the event, can be found online.
