About Derby Festé

Derby Festé was founded in 2007 to mark the opening of Westfield, Derby. This was followed in September 2008 by a second Festé event to mark the launch of the Cultural Olympiad in the East Midlands and the opening of QUAD. In 2009, Derby Festé became a stand-alone festival for the East Midlands and since the first event, has had the ambition of developing into an annual event with funding from various public and private sector organisations.

Derby Festé is produced and presented by Déda, Derby LIVE, Derby Theatre and QUAD in association with the Without Walls Associate Touring Network. It is funded by Arts Council England and Derby City Council, with support from St Peters Quarter, Cathedral Quarter and Intu Derby.
