Extension for festive events

THE Derby LIVE events team has programmed some additional, festive, fun attractions and entertainment for all people of all ages to enjoy and to add to the Christmas feel in the Market Place and Cornmarket.

On Saturday, December 17, you can come and visit some of Santa’s best friends on the Market Place, when a family of reindeers will be present for visitors to stroke and feed.

On Thursday, December 15, say hello to a very cheeky elf and be entertained by a five-piece band, the City of Derby Girls’ Choir and Razzamatazz Dance School.

Prepare for the ‘aah factor’ on Saturday, December 17, as you say hello to a group of husky dogs who will be in the Market Place, along with a parade of funny walkabout penguins. The Winter Wonderland

Birds, a flurry of fun, festive and illuminated feathered friends will be flying in to join in the fun on Thursday, December 22.

Finally, Derby Christmas Fayre has now been extended to December 24 on the Cornmarket and the Christmas Ice Rink now runs until January 8.
