It’s official – Derby Theatre is now a Theatre of Sanctuary!
For years, this extraordinary theatre has been welcoming people seeking, highlighting stories of forced migration and platforming the voices of those with lived-experience.
We are over the moon that this incredible work has now been officially recognised!
“We are absolutely delighted that Derby Theatre has been recognised as a Theatre of Sanctuary. For many years, this amazing organisation has been at the forefront of welcoming those seeking sanctuary into their venue, creating opportunities to learn from those with lived experience in shaping performances and programming, and inspiring other organisations across the city to do the same” – Andrew Jackson, Chair of Derby City of Sanctuary Network.
