Mayor's Charity Cabaret launches Derby Market Place marquee

Wed 23 Jun 2021

To mark the opening of the Derby Market Place marquee this Saturday, 26 June, The Mayor of Derby is to host a charity event with performances by the Fairly Famous Family’s Just In Case and The Lost Boys.

The event will be hosted by The Lost Boys, Derby’s own double act, who will also bring you The Game of Life: Derby Edition whilst Fairly Famous Family’s Just in Case is an all-action musical comedy thriller. Two sharp suited performers arrive with five mysterious flight cases. Inside each case is a new comedy adventure such as an unforgettable tribute to The Sound of Music, smashing plate manipulation, circus tricks and a juggling version of Hamlet.

Tickets for the two performances at 2pm and 8pm on Sat 26 June are on sale online for £5.00, £2.50 for under 16s. You can also call our Sales and Information Centre on 01332 255800. The running time for each performance is 45 mins, and there will also be an invited guest only show at 5pm.
