Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of the public and our staff has been the priority of Derby City Council. It is with regret that we are now announcing that all outdoor events, and events at Derby Arena and other venues, will not be running until at least the end of August.

In the meantime we will work to put measures in place to ensure that events are run safely for the public and staff members, ready for when we are able to start hosting them again.
Where changes are made to ticketed events, we will contact customers direct. There is no need for anyone who has booked tickets to contact us. Our Sales and Information Centre in Full Street, Derby remains closed which means we cannot deal with people face-to-face or take telephone calls, however you can contact Derby Live by email.

We are working with event organisers to postpone as many events as possible, and to reschedule new dates. The latest information will be updated on the InDerby website. The list of affected events is not exhaustive but includes:
